Mandarin: Online Text to Speech tool
This is a free online Text to Speech tool, to help you learn Mandarin Chinese! I have also saved this in my del.icio.us site here.
It converts any written Chinese to speech in real time. The website is: http://www.iflylanguage.com
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.”
