Take a look at this program if you want to convert any photograph or image into a speech.
Text-to-speech (sometimes known as “read aloud”) is a sort of assistive technology in which a computer or tablet reads out to the user the text on the screen. This technology is utilized by people of all ages, and it also enables accessing digital information easier for everyone else.
But what if the text you’re supposed to read aloud is in the form of a photograph? Is there any way to get the app to read it? Because not all tools have that feature, it depends on which one you’re using. There is, however, an app that can assist you with this: Woord is a free internet application that adds voice to any text.
Woord is a free online TTS that has a number of handy features. It’s available in more than 50 languages, including several dialects of English, Portuguese, and Spanish. You also have the option of selecting a masculine, female, or gender-neutral voice. All of these features are free, allowing you to try out the service before enrolling in the premium version. Surprisingly, the free version comes with premium voices, a Chrome plugin, an SSML editor, an MP3 download, and up to 20,000 characters every month. You may also change the pace and format of the voices with this software.
In addition, Woord‘s voice features allow you to use it in a variety of settings. For example, in E-learning and education, you can use Woord‘s Text-to-Speech (TTS) functionality to create applications that assist persons with reading problems.
As noted previously, Woord can be used to assist the blind and visually impaired in the consumption of digital information such as eBooks and newspapers, but it can also be utilized in a variety of devices such as set-top boxes, and smartwatches, tablets, and smartphones.
How to use it?
It’s quite easy. Simply go to www.getwoord.com, click on ‘Online reader,’ or install the Chrome extension, and then click on ‘Photo or Scan to Audio.’ After that, you select the file, import it, choose the gender and language, then press the ‘Speak It’ button.
It’s as simple as that! You may also make changes to the text Woord generated from your photo to make it more personalized to your preferences. After that, you can download it and make whatever changes you want.
Woord also has a lot of enticing features, including:
- The ability to import PDFs, photographs, documents, webpages, and a range of other file types.
- An SSML editor that allows you to change the pace, tone, volume, and pacing of the message.
