    Alternative text to speech options

    I have a TTS engine Android app which allows for much higher quality TTS options than just those in my default Android settings (Samsung and Google TTS). The TTS engine app is already useable in other apps such as Ankidroid but not in Pleco which only allows for Google and Samsung options in my...

    TTS not working

    Hi. Please help I can't seem to get Pleco's TTS to work. I used to paste news articles into Pleco's Clip Reader and listen to TTS. That option is not working, I tap the button, but nothing happens. When I go Settings -> Audio -> Sentence Audio, I see: System TTS Engine: Speech Services by...

    Hi, for the headword audio, I can alternate between male and female voice. However, for sentence audio, I only have Apple Mandarin Female. Is it normal?

    Text To Speech - Chinese Language iOS vs English iOS

    I bought the Audio Pronunciation (male) some time ago. Today I compared the pronunciation on my iPhone running the current iOS against my Taiwan (working in China) teacher’s Pleco TTS pronunciation with no add on modules. My speech is ‘choppy’, perhaps as expected from the 11 MB download size...

    My experiences with Pleco -> Anki droid. Some improvements that Pleco could use.

    I've put off studying Chinese for a while, but in lights of some obligations had to get back at it. Luckily, Pleco has some TTS... And god damn the new TTS sound so great, especially Qiang, so sexyyyyyyy---- <- this right here is a motivator. New husbando FTW. In lights of attempting a new...
