pyttsx3 is a text-to-speech conversion library in Python. Unlike alternative libraries, it works offline and is compatible with both Python 2 and 3. An application invokes the pyttsx3.init() factory function to get a reference to a pyttsx3. Engine instance. it is a very easy to use tool which converts the entered text into speech.
The pyttsx3 module supports two voices first is female and the second is male which is provided by “sapi5” for windows.
It supports three TTS engines :
- sapi5 – SAPI5 on Windows
- nsss – NSSpeechSynthesizer on Mac OS X
- espeak – eSpeak on every other platform
To install the pyttsx3 module, first of all, you have to open the terminal and write
pip install pyttsx3
If you receive errors such as No module named win32com.client, No module named win32, or No module named win32api, you will need to additionally install pypiwin32.
It can work on any platform. Now we are all set to write a program for conversion of text to speech.
Code : Python program to convert text to speech
The output of the above program would be a voice saying,
'Hello sir, how may I help you, sir.'
