Posted: September 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

Below code is for converting text to speech, here i hav taken a simple example which will convert your text in (English) speech, you can change it in any language which will support.

import java.util.Locale;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.speech.tts.TextToSpeech;
import android.speech.tts.TextToSpeech.OnInitListener;
import android.util.Log;

public class TextToSpeechActivity extends Activity implements OnInitListener {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
TextToSpeech tts; String text="How Are You Boom?";

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

tts = new TextToSpeech(this,
this // TextToSpeech.OnInitListener
); }

public void onInit(int status) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
if (status == TextToSpeech.SUCCESS) {
// Set preferred language to US english.
// Note that a language may not be available, and the result will indicate this.
int result = tts.setLanguage(Locale.ENGLISH);
// Try this someday for some interesting results.
// int result mTts.setLanguage(Locale.FRANCE);
if (result == TextToSpeech.LANG_MISSING_DATA ||
result == TextToSpeech.LANG_NOT_SUPPORTED) {
// Lanuage data is missing or the language is not supported.
Log.e("Text to speech------", "Language is not available.");
} else {
// Check the documentation for other possible result codes.
// For example, the language may be available for the locale,
// but not for the specified country and variant.

// The TTS engine has been successfully initialized.
// Allow the user to press the button for the app to speak again.
// Greet the user.
TextToSpeech.QUEUE_FLUSH, // Drop all pending entries in the playback queue.
} else {
// Initialization failed.
Log.e("text To speech-----", "Could not initialize TextToSpeech.");

protected void onDestroy() {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
if (tts != null) {
