Voice Out Small App is a simple Text-to-speech TTS client that makes your device speak texts with the Android Text-to-speech Engine TTS.
Voice Out Small App helps you read in foreign languages. Simply copy the text to the text box or type a text and the application helps you convert the text into voice. Make your Xperia say anything you want in foreign languages.
This small application aims to be simple and without useless features or options and accesses your device clipboard to get the copied text so you don't need to paste it manually.
Your device must have a Text-to-Speech engine installed in order to make it work.
To check if you have a Text-to-speech Engine installed, go to Settings -> Accessibility -> System -> Text-to-speech output. If you don’t have any, just go to the play store and install one.
