Text To Speech (TTS) Wrapper For Android With Delphi XE5 Firemonkey

Delphi Firemonkey Android Text To Speech TTSEmbarcadero has a blog post from September 2013 that highlights a Text To Speech (TTS) unit that was created by Jeff Overcash. The TTS unit wraps the native Android Text to Speech API and gives you access to it from your Delphi XE5 Firemonkey application. You can take a look at the Android SDK information for android.speech.tts to see the full help on using the API. The interfaces that are implemented in the wrapper are listed below:

And here is a sample from the demo that is included with the wrapper:

    • Ronnie says:

      What I did was, I download a spanish tts to my android phone, then on “TttsOnInitListener.onInit” procedure I replace this:
      result := FParent.tts.setLanguage(TJLocale.JavaClass.US);
      with this
      result := FParent.tts.setLanguage(TJLocale.JavaClass.getDefault);

    It does not work on the Galaxy . (TTS INIT ERROR)
    What is the reason ?

    First of all, thank you for this example.

    On my Samsung S3 (Android 4.3) example doesn’t work.

    Program crashes on

    tts := TJTextToSpeech.JavaClass.init(SharedActivityContext, ttsListener);

    Prior to upgrade of Android version everything was working fine. On another device (Android 4.0.4) there is no problem.

    I noticed that there were some changes in API level 18 for TTS. Maybe that’s the reason?

    Best regards,
