1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hi, is it possible to have the droid read info on a webpage and give me text to speech ? I know it does text to speech but I dont know if it can do this.
    Any apps?
    thanks

    Tasker may be able to do this. It can be done on a small scale at the very least by reading the contents of a variable. I've done this to an extent by dropping specific data elements from an xml feed into variables and having them read out loud.

    On my desktop computer I use Text Aloud with AT&T's Naturally Speaking Voices, which reads out web pages and/or any text that I highlight. I thought that was such a cool feature to have especially since the screen is so small. I've been searching for about two years now for a program that would allow this capability on my phone, but today I have NOT found such a application. However, I have found a really nice workaround, which involves two different programs.

    The first and most important being the VOICE.
    I'm using the Droid X, which has a wonderful built-in TTS program, but the voice sounds to robotic to me and sometimes a little hard to understand. So for this I found in the android market a voice called: LOQUENDO TTS SUSAN. I find this voice to be amazing but NOT CHEAP ($6.00), even better than the one on my desktop. I say this because it comes with additional features not found in my desktop software, like if I type this :) and have the software read it, the program will give a very realistic laugh. If I type this :) the program will return a realistic crying sound. If I type this xxx, the program will blow kisses. etc.

    Now, the way I use this is with COPY AND PASTE, which is built-in to the web browser and gmail.
    Once I copy the text to be read I paste it into a program called: LANGLEARNER SPEAKER, which is FREE in the market. Once the text is pasted into this program there is a "SPEAK" button at the bottom which reads the text aloud.

    I realize at first glance this sounds like a lot work, but its really not with a little practice and I find myself using this a lot in my daily use of the phone and its also good practice in Multi Tasking Programs.

    Also for additional voice, Google provides a program call: SVOX CLASSIC TTS.
    For a great translation program that works with all these voices, I use: TALK TO ME.

    Because of the small foot print and the amazing sound, I am REALLY enjoying my phone these days.

    HOPE THIS HELPS.
