Free Text to speech using Google service

I was looking for some text to speech service to get good mp3 file for some text in my project and I found couple of paid services which are really great but having this as part time project I wouldn’t pay. So I kept looking and I found that Google provide text to speech service. just use the following url and pass the text as q parameter and url generate MP3 output which you can store and use it. http://translate.google.com/translate_tts?ie=utf-8&tl=en&q={text} There are also some PHP wrapper classes available which uitlize same service.

using javascript, you can also use audio class to play mp3 from web url like as follow.

var audio = new Audio();
audio.src ='http://translate.google.com/translate_tts?ie=utf-8&tl=en&q=Hello%20World';
audio.play();
