I've always loved Text-To-Speech (TTS), since the days of Star Trek, and wanted to make it easy to add quality TTS to mobile apps.
How it works
A simple URL request generates an MP3 file using TTS. That file can be downloaded and used as desired.
Challenges I ran into
Tricky to test for special cases, like apostrophes, quotation marks, etc.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
High quality TTS, quickly and easily added to any web or mobile app
What I learned
Need to scale server if demand increases
What's next for AutoTTS: Automatic Text-To-Speech
Add login/password or API Key to enable authentication
