Qt Speech

The module enables a Qt application to support accessibility features such as text-to-speech, which is useful for end-users who are visually challenged or cannot access the application for whatever reason. The most common use case where text-to-speech comes in handy is when the end-user is driving and cannot attend the incoming messages on the phone. In such a scenario, the messaging application can read out the incoming message.

The module depends on Speech Dispatcher (libspeechd) on the Linux platform. On other platforms, it uses the native APIs to access the platform-specific text-to-speech engines.

Getting Started

To include the definitions of the module's classes and functions, use the following directive:

#include <QTextToSpeech>

To link against the module, add this line to your qmake .pro file:
