CANTONESE TEXT TO SPEECH ON ANDROID
My Voice Out mobile app series has been updated to version 1.10!
It contains some bug fixes, UI enhancements and supports the following:
– Stop function
– Pause function *
– Seek function *
– Receive text from other apps **
– Extract text from web page automatically if an Web URL is sent to the app **
* by paragraph only
** not available on the small app version
The current Android TTS doesn’t support “pause” so I used an alternative way to “pause” the playback by paragraph. The app will automatically highlight the paragraph read and if you press the pause button the reading will pause there.
The stop function is just a basic stop function that moves the play head back to the beginning of the text.
I also added some status message to function as feedback.
