Text to Speech in Flex

Back in August at the Flex Jam in Orlando one of the projects we worked on was Text to Speech in Flex. We didn’t finish the project at the Jam so I wanted to post the final version here. Check it out:

(source code)

I used the iSpeech.org API to convert the text to speech. It was pretty easy to build this demo but a production version would need to use a proxy so that the username and password can’t be discovered.

Let me know what you think.

UPDATE: Periodically this demo might stop working because I’ve run out of credits at ispeech.org. If it doesn’t work for you please post a comment here and let me know.
