I need to find a way to have text-to-speech on the Air platform.
Is there a working ANE? which is maintained by a company that will exist in the future?
Is there a way I can use google cloud services on: https://texttospeech.googleapis.com/
or on 'http://translate.google.com/translate_tts?ie=utf-8&tl=en&q=Hello%20World'
or some other way I can do it?
What platforms are you looking to support? we have one in testing for mobile (android/ios) that should be available soon.
looking to support all platforms, meaning windows, mac , android, iOS.
Is it not needed on windows and mac that you made it support only android and iOS?
can I somehow use the built-in TTS feature on win and mac on the Air SDK without an ANE?
Generally we get more requests for mobile functionality so we tend to implement and support those platforms first. I haven't looked into windows and macos regarding TTS as yet so can't give you a definite answer there.
If I install the TTS ANE you are working on, will I have to pay for the service to the AI service provider in addition to what I pay for the ANE, and I will have to be online for the TTS functionality to work?
Hi, What I have developed so far just uses the Android and iOS SDK TTS functionality. It is completely local and doesn't require an internet connection and there are no additional costs for it. As I mentioned I haven't done any serious investigation into a windows or macos implementation as yet.
Is it ready? can I test it? Can you send a link?
Hi, Email us at email@example.com and I'll send you the current beta.
