Phone Arena rounde up some of the best text-to-speech engines available in the Play Store. They offer better voice quality than what typically comes packaged with an Android handset.
- IVONA Text-to-Speech HQ
Arguably one of the best natural voice synthesizers, Ivona was recently bought out by Amazon, but its TTS apps are still present for all Android devices, covering major languages like English, French, German, Spanish and so on. Choose from, male or female. The language packs are huge and often north of 200 MB, but it has the stellar pronunciation.
- SVOX Classic Text To Speech Engine
Support for more than 25 different languages, including Japanese, Korean and Mandarin, and 40+ male or female intonations. The engine is the most comprehensive of them all when it comes to language coverage, and you even have the opportunity to correct the pronunciation if you notice that everyone around you utters the word in a way different than the Oxford
- Samsung TTS
If you own a Samsung Android handset or tablet you likely have some localization of Samsung’s own text-to-speech engine preinstalled. The pronunciation is stellar. If for some reason it is not set as default on your Galaxy handset, go to the language and input setting, and select it from the TTS menu, then download the respective language pack.
- CereProc TTS Voice
CereProc’s TTS language packs aren’t free, but $2.30 is a really small price to pay for voice algorithms that have been polished for years with native speakers. Come with unmatched personality, and you can try out the Idyacy set for the app to have your phone grunt Latin like a pig to you, or speak with incomprehensible Lancashire accent.
- AquesTalk TTS
Tailored specifically to Japanese users/learners, AquesTalk offers a pleasant female voice to read out your navigation, text, emails, or simply the words in your Japanese dictionary.
