Google Adds 34 Languages for Text-to-Speech Application

Emanuel Longo | May 12, 2010

Gear up to learn a new language with Google’s help!

Google Translate now offers 34 languages in its text-to-speech application. You can learn a new language simply by typing in different phrases and listening to the voice synthesizer. Just be careful not to mimic it completely…some languages sound like a robot while others sound smoother. Hopefully after time, this will be fixed. But no one can complain about a free language lesson!

Here are the “smooth” text-to-speech voice synthesizers: English, Haitian Creole, French, Italian, German, Hindi and Spanish.

The more robotic sounding languages are licensed from eSpeak because they have the capability to cover more languages. Some of these languages include: Dutch, Polish, Norwegian, Vietnamese, Swahili and Romanian.

Test it out and let us know what you think.
