Convert text to speech using the eSpeak speech synthesizer. The synthesized speech is output by the default audio device.

The input port accepts a uint8 array containing the ASCII text to be converted: uint8('string').

For example, you can send uint8('Hello world') or uint8('1 2 3') to the input. Sending [1 2 3] to the input does not work.

If you run a simulation of a model that contains this block without the target hardware, this block does nothing. See Block Produces Zeros or Does Nothing in Simulation.


The dialog does not contain any parameters.
