I have a question and I cannot find the answer. Is there a way to get microsoft TTS on homey? I know it is possible in HA but maybe it is also available in Homey. Microsoft TTS is a lot better than Google TTS (it sounds more natural).
Would be nice to implement it in homey
Have you tried the Google Services app? That uses the latest and greatest TTS from Google. I think their new voices are really good.
If you have Sonos speakers you could have a look at the HTTP-API from them, if I remember correctly it is possible to enable Microsoft TTS instead of the default implementation of Google (it uses the old API / voices of Google btw).
Experimental support for TTS. Today the following providers are available:
- Microsoft Cognitive Services (Bing Text to Speech API)
- AWS Polly
- Google (default)
- macOS say command
source: GitHub - jishi/node-sonos-http-api: An HTTP API bridge for Sonos easing automation. Hostable on any node.js capable device, like a raspberry pi or similar.
Thank you for this tip, I forgot to react to your post. But I have installed it and am using this now. Thank you very much for the good tips!
