How do text-to-speech programs work?

It works for any device, i.e. your computer, tablet and mobile phone. With a single click or touch, your device will read aloud the text appearing on your device. In TTS, the voice is computer-generated, but it sounds similar to a human voice.

The efficient working of TTS is because of the deep neural networks (DNNs). The first stage of the text-to-speech converter is text processing which involves the conversion of text to language linguistic features. In the second stage, the preprocessed linguistic features convert to acoustic features. Finally, the acoustic features convert to audio waves.
