    flite

    binding for flite, a tiny text-to-speech synthesizer

    installation

    $ npm install flite
    

    also requires flite 1.4.x(www) and either aplay(www) or afplay (default on OS X) to be installed and in your $PATH.

    Flite is super tiny and fast and works great on ARM (eg, robots!), and has a variety of voices available (which are compiled into the binary - you probably want to build it yourself).

    example

    var flite = require('flite')
    
    var message = "you know what we need? some more waffles!"
    
    flite(function (err, speech) {
      speech.say(message, function (err) {
        if (err) console.error('I\'m afraid I can\'t do that, Dave', err);
      });
    });
    

    usage

    var flite = require('flite')
    flite([config], callback)
    
    • config object (optional)
    • callback: function (err, speech) - initializes and returns a speech object

    config is an object with any of the following keys

    • voice: string - the name of a voice
    • ssml: boolean - treat input as ssml

    speech.voices // array

    array of valid voice names to use with the voice configuration setting.

    speech.config(configObj)

    set configuration settings for this instance of speech

    speech.say(text, [fileout], callback)

    speak the given input string text. if fileout is specified, the wavefile will be writen to that file and not to the speakers. if fileout is omitted, the wavefile will be played immediately. callback is invoked after the wavefile is written or the sound is done playing.
