Text to Speech Convertor in C#

Text to Speech converters is a software that converts written text into voice. C# allows users to create text to speech converter in a very simple way by using C# library “System.Speech”.

In this very quick tutorial we’ll learn how to create a text to speech converter in Windows forms application C#.

Tools Required:

  1. Visual Studio.

Steps to Follow:

  1. First of all create a new Windows forms application project in visual studio.
  2. Add a Rich text box which will contain our text.
  3. After that We’ll need 3 buttons to speak, Pause and Resume the voice. add them from the toolbox.
  4. Now go to the code view of the form and Add a Header file “using System.Speech.Synthesis”.
  5. Create an object of SpeechSynthesizer, let say we name object as speech and Add the following code in the click event of Speak Button.

if (richTextBox1.Text != “”)
{
speech.SpeakAsync(richTextBox1.Text);
}

This will speak the the text which is added in the rich textbox.

6. Now sometimes we have to Pause the voice. So, to do that, add the following code inside the on click event of Pause button.

if (speech.State == SynthesizerState.Speaking)
{
speech.Pause();
}

This code will tell the speech Synthesizer to Pause if it in Speaking state.

7. To Resume voice, add the following code inside the on click event of Resume button:

if (speech.State == SynthesizerState.Speaking)
{
speech.Pause();
}

The above code will tell our software to resume its task if it is Paused.

Now, our text to speech converter is ready. I hope this article will helpful for some of you guys.
