Please do not leave negative reviews or comments if you find any bugs in the program or if the program didn't work. Please email us first and let us know if you find anything wrong with the application so that we can fix the bugs which will not only be helpful for you, but also for other people. Leaving bad reviews for simple reasons like "This app didn't work on my " will not help in any ways, and instead might harm the development and continuity of the application. We will be glad to help you personally on anything related to this app. Enjoy :)
Yay! Made the application free :)
● Lets you type or paste text, which it can then pronounce out loud.
● The voice's pitch and speaking rate can be varied.
● The pronounciation can be repeated automatically.
● The pronounciation can be saved as a sound file, which can then be used as an alarm, music, notification and/or ringtone.
● If any text is selected, only the selection will be pronounced or saved.
● Text (ie, input) files (in UTF-8 encoding) can be opened and/or saved.
● If any button is long-pressed, a hint (tool tip) will be displayed.
● Your device's text-to-speech engine must be installed and configured. Sayer uses the default engine and voice. If you don't like Android's default, try SVOX or Ivona.
● Sayer stores sound files in .WAV format. Apps are available for converting to .MP3, etc.
● Sayer can open text files created in other apps if you copy them into Sayer’s external files directory. The location of this will depend on your device, but it will probably end in “Android/data/net.catplace.sayer/files/”.
- Supports multiple TTS engines (Google, Ivona, SVOX etc.)
- Choose between all TTS installed languages
- Create presets for saving your favourite engine/language/speed/pitch combinations
- Save the entered text as one .wav file or broken into one file per word
If you don't have a TTS engine installed on your device already (for example if you're using a custom ROM), Vocality will prompt you on startup and give you the option to install the default Google TTS engine languages.
- External storage: All generated samples are saved to user's choice of directory on sd-card equivalent.

Speech synthesis is the artificial production of human speech. A computer system used for this purpose is called a speech synthesizer, and can be implemented in software or hardware products. A text-to-speech (TTS) system converts normal language text into speech; other systems render symbolic linguistic representations like phonetic transcriptions into speech.
Synthesized speech can be created by concatenating pieces of recorded speech that are stored in a database. Systems differ in the size of the stored speech units; a system that stores phones or diphones provides the largest output range, but may lack clarity. For specific usage domains, the storage of entire words or sentences allows for high-quality output. Alternatively, a synthesizer can incorporate a model of the vocal tract and other human voice characteristics to create a completely "synthetic" voice output.
The quality of a speech synthesizer is judged by its similarity to the human voice and by its ability to be understood. An intelligible text-to-speech program allows people with visual impairments or reading disabilities to listen to written works on a home computer. Many computer operating systems have included speech synthesizers since the early 1990s.

A text-to-speech system (or "engine") is composed of two parts: a front-end and a back-end. The front-end has two major tasks. First, it converts raw text containing symbols like numbers and abbreviations into the equivalent of written-out words. This process is often called text normalization, pre-processing, or tokenization. The front-end then assigns phonetic transcriptions to each word, and divides and marks the text into prosodic units, like phrases, clauses, and sentences. The process of assigning phonetic transcriptions to words is called text-to-phoneme or grapheme-to-phoneme conversion. Phonetic transcriptions and prosody information together make up the symbolic linguistic representation that is output by the front-end. The back-end—often referred to as the synthesizer—then converts the symbolic linguistic representation into sound. In certain systems, this part includes the computation of the target prosody (pitch contour, phoneme durations), which is then imposed on the output speech.
