This is a demo on how to use the ActiveX VideoLAN.VLCPlugin.2 in combination with the unofficial google text to speech (TTS) engine to generate speech from text.
You need to install the VLC-Media-Player and have a internetconnection to call the google service.
In this demo is a popup where you can select the language in which the text from the edit-field (type in at least 100 characters) should be read.
Four languages are implemented actually (english, german, spanish and french) and the written text should be in the selected language.
e.g: english: Good Morning!
german: Guten Morgen!
spanish: Buenos dias!
