This calls the SAPI5 API directly, it does not need an external program.

FreeBASIC does not have a native command for them.

We are going to invoke vbscript directly

''This works on Windows. Does anyone know how it would be done in Linux? 

Sub speak(texto As String)
    Dim As String frase
    frase ="mshta vbscript:Execute(""CreateObject(""""SAPI.SpVoice"""").Speak("""""+texto+""""")(window.close)"")"
    Print texto
    Shell frase
End Sub

speak "Vamos a contar " + str(123456)
speak "This is an example of speech synthesis."


FB offers easy access to excellent quality native synthesized voices in a variety of accents and languages available on Macs as demonstrated here. For a more comprehensive demonstration of speech synthesis, see the FutureBasic Rosetta Code task solution to: [Old Laday Swallowed a Fly.]

SpeechSynthesizerRef ref
ref = fn SpeechSynthesizerWithVoice( @"com.apple.speech.synthesis.voice.daniel.premium" )
fn SpeechSynthesizerStartSpeakingString( ref, @"This is an example of speech synthesis."  )



if var.number=0 then
say("This is an example of speech synthesis.")


Here's a library solution, but using a library written from scratch in Go.

package main

import (


const pkgPath = "github.com/unixpickle/gospeech"
const input = "This is an example of speech synthesis."

func main() {
    p, err := build.Import(pkgPath, ".", build.FindOnly)
    if err != nil {
    d := filepath.Join(p.Dir, "dict/cmudict-IPA.txt")
    dict, err := gospeech.LoadDictionary(d)
    if err != nil {
    phonetics := dict.TranslateToIPA(input)
    synthesized := gospeech.DefaultVoice.Synthesize(phonetics)
    wav.WriteFile(synthesized, "output.wav")


Mac only:

'say "This is an example of speech synthesis."'.execute()


import System.Process (callProcess) -- From “process” library

say text = callProcess "espeak" ["--", text]

main = say "This is an example of speech synthesis."


This should work in most major browsers

Works with: Javascript
var utterance = new SpeechSynthesisUtterance("This is an example of speech synthesis.");

Windows only:

Works with: JScript
var voice = new ActiveXObject("SAPI.SpVoice");
voice.speak("This is an example of speech synthesis.");


It seems that this and similar tasks can reduce to how the language can call an external program. Using the Julia REPL:

julia> a = "hello world"
"hello world"

julia> run(`espeak $a`)


Translation of: C
Works with: Ubuntu 16.04

Note that this code does not work on Windows 10.

Note also that Kotlin Native does not support the automatic translation of C function-like macros such as WIFEXITED and WEXITSTATUS.

Whilst it is often possible to wrap such macros in 'ordinary' C functions and then expose the latter to Kotlin via a .klib, it is not worth the effort here. I have therefore confined myself to simply reporting a non-zero error status.

// Kotlin Native v0.6.2

import kotlinx.cinterop.*
import platform.posix.*

fun talk(s: String) {
    val pid = fork()
    if (pid < 0) {
    if (pid == 0) {
       execlp("espeak", "espeak", s, null)
    memScoped {
        val status = alloc<IntVar>()
        waitpid(pid, status.ptr, 0)
        if (status.value > 0) println("Exit status was ${status.value}")

fun main(args: Array<String>) {
    talk("This is an example of speech synthesis.")

Liberty BASICEdit

Assumes that 'espeak' is available at the path shown.

run "C:\Program Files\eSpeak\command_line\espeak  "; chr$( 34); "This is an example of speech synthesis."; chr$( 34)

Another dll has been posted to do the same job, at LB Community Wiki

Locomotive BasicEdit

Both hardware and software-only speech synthesizers exist for the CPC. A software-only solution, Speech 1.1 by Superior Software (1986), supplies three BASIC extension commands (RSXes), "|say", "|speak", and "|pitch":

|say,"This is an example of speech synthesis."

Mathematica/Wolfram LanguageEdit

Speak["This is an example of speech synthesis."]


Using same method as Julia.

import osproc

discard execCmd("espeak 'Hello world!'")


Define a function that is using espeak package from Linux.

speak(txt,opt="")=extern(concat(["espeak ",opt," \"",txt,"\""]));

Now let it speak:

speak("This is an example of speech synthesis")

A monster speech tongue-twister:

speak("The seething sea ceaseth and thus the seething sea sufficeth us.","-p10 -s100")

A foreign language "Zungenbrecher":

speak("Fischers Fritz fischt frische Fische.","-vmb/mb-de2 -s130")


use Speech::Synthesis;

($engine) = Speech::Synthesis->InstalledEngines();
($voice) = Speech::Synthesis->InstalledVoices(engine => $engine);

  ->new(engine => $engine, voice => $voice->{id})
  ->speak("This is an example of speech synthesis.");

You can run this online here.

requires(6) -- WINDOWS or JS, not LINUX
requires(32) -- Windows 32 bit only, for now... 
-- (^ runs fine on a 64-bit OS, but needs a 32-bit p.exe)
include builtins\speak.e -- (new in 1.0.2)
constant text = "This is an example of speech synthesis"

end function

Ihandle btn = IupButton("Speak",Icallback("button_cb")),
        dlg = IupDialog(IupHbox({btn},"MARGIN=180x80"))
if platform()!=JS then
end if

Note that speech synthesis has refused to operate in a browser without user activation since 2018, hence the tiny GUI with a button.
Should you for some strange reason want it on desktop/Phix without any GUI, you'd need to arrange for COM initialisation etc yourself.


Linux & Mac example uses eSpeak (eSpeak Instillation instructions included in comments). Mac also has a built in Speech synthesis system and this example allows you to optionally use that instead of eSpeak. Windows example uses built in Windows Speech API.

OS X comes with a program called "say," that does speech.

import Foundation

let task = NSTask()
task.launchPath = "/usr/bin/say"
task.arguments = ["This is an example of speech synthesis."]


This just passes the string into the Festival system:

exec festival --tts << "This is an example of speech synthesis."

Alternatively, on MacOS X, you'd use the system say program:

exec say << "This is an example of speech synthesis."

On Windows, there is a service available by COM for speech synthesis:

Library: tcom
package require tcom

set msg "This is an example of speech synthesis."
set voice [::tcom::ref createobject Sapi.SpVoice]
$voice Speak $msg 0

Putting these together into a helper procedure, we get:

proc speak {msg} {
    global tcl_platform
    if {$tcl_platform(platform) eq "windows"} {
        package require tcom
        set voice [::tcom::ref createobject Sapi.SpVoice]
        $voice Speak $msg 0
    } elseif {$tcl_platform(os) eq "Darwin"} {
        exec say << $msg
    } else {
        exec festival --tts << $msg
speak "This is an example of speech synthesis."

UNIX ShellEdit

Here we use the open source espeak tool:

Works with: Bourne Shell
Works with: bash
espeak "This is an example of speech synthesis."


Dim message, sapi
message = "This is an example of speech synthesis."
Set sapi = CreateObject("sapi.spvoice")
sapi.Speak message


The ability to call external processes such as espeak is expected to be added to Wren-cli in the next release. In the meantime, we embed the following Wren script in a minimal C host (no error checking) to complete this task.

/* speech_synthesis.wren */

class C {
    foreign static getInput(maxSize)

    foreign static espeak(s)
