It may be for years in Ubuntu but it is new to me. 🙂
- Multilingual speech software syncthesizer
Type the following in the terminal
espeak "I am ramukumar"
It will read the text.
Now you people will have question how to control the reading speed? how to control the pitch ? and lots more......
I will say you can do lots and lots of trick with this. Like to control the pitch use -p option and to control the speed -s option
To know the basic options just type "espeak -h"
