HTML5 introduces the Speech API for Speech Synthesis and Speech Recognition. This is the easiest way to use the spoken word in your app or website. Speech Synthesis or more commonly known as Text To Speech (TTS) is now available in most modern browsers. Gone are the days of waiting for Text To Speech engines to render MP3 audio files from text and then download them from servers. Today the browser can instantly speak text on the client side and with quite reasonable quality.
Single purpose API
We've added 17 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Marine, Transportation, Text-to-Speech and others. Included is an API from Pole Star that allows developers to track marine vessel navigation. Here's a summary of the new additions and how they could aid developers.
