Mandarin: Online Text to Speech tool

April 9, 2008 at 10:30 am 6 comments

This is a free online Text to Speech tool, to help you learn Mandarin Chinese! I have also saved this in my site here.

It converts any written Chinese to speech in real time. The website is:

From the publisher:

“The main features are:

1. You can input any Chinese text, there are two narrators (Man/Woman) you can select to read the text for you.

2. You can select to read the full text, character by character or word by word. Click the sentence, the character, the word, you can hear it!

3. The Advanced reading mode settings allows you to make some changes for the reading style, i.e. you can let the man and woman read dialogues for you, and the reading speed, the Chinese Pinyin can also be adjusted.

4. You can save the audio file and text file marked with Chinese Pinyin.”

    I am seeking a spanish palm-top size translator that can translate mandarin symbols written on its screen, pronounce the words and give the English meaning.

    Do you have any information where this can be found?

      Hi there,

      Not that I know of, but I’ll be sure to let you know if I come across anything similar. Maybe someone else reading this might know?
