How to Build Text to Speech App with Python & PyQt5

In this article we are going to learn that How to Build Text to Speech App with Python & PyQt5, for this we want to use QtTextToSpeech module, the QtTextToSpeech module enables a PyQt 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. In which case the application can read out the relevant text.

 

 

First of all open your Qt Designer, by default we don’t have Qt Designer in PyQt5, you need to install PyQt5 Tools.

  • Add Another QLabel with QComboBox and make the layout Horizontally
  • Add Another QLabel with QSlider and make the layout Horizontally
  • At the end make the main window layout as vertically
