Eckher Text to Speech is an online tool that narrates user-provided text using the browser's built-in text-to-speech engine. By producing synthetic speech "at the edge", it allows users to quickly listen to any text that they have entered without sending it to back-end servers for synthetic speech generation.
Eckher Text to Speech can be used to "read aloud" books or articles. Simply paste the text passage into the textbox and press "Listen".
Since Eckher TTS speaks the words out loud, it can be used to practice word pronunciations. For example, you can listen to it say words like "entrepreneur", "croissant", and "synecdoche".
Finally, Eckher Text to Speech has many accessibility applications as a form of assistive technology.
