== NOTES ==
1. Google Navigation requires that the Text-to-Speech voice matches the phone language. You can change the phone language in Android Settings -> Language & keyboard -> Select language .
2. On Android 2.1 and earlier, only some apps, like Google Translation, support changing voices.
This is a port of eSpeak to Android for 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and later (including Android 4.3), supporting all 79 languages and accents of eSpeak (see http://reecedunn.co.uk/espeak-for-android for the list).
It is built on the eyes-free version, fixing multiple issues found in the eyes-free version:
1. Compatibility with Android 4.3 (as of 1.47.11d);
2. Speech rate and pitch are correctly handled, so eSpeak on Android sounds like it does on the desktop;
3. Speech rate is set as words per minute
4. Pitch, base pitch and volume are configurable as percentages.
5. The eSpeak variant can be selected, including the NVDA voice variants.
6. Punctuation level and punctuation characters are configurable.
7. Languages are correctly selected (e.g. selecting Slovak and Slovenian, or selecting Cantonese Chinese);
8. Language names are correctly displayed (e.g. "Scottish English" is displayed as "English (United Kingdom, Scottish Standard English)" instead of "English (Saychelles)");
9. Accent and special characters are supported;
10. MIPS-based devices are supported;
11. Various memory leaks and crashes are fixed;
12. SSML is only processed if the SSML markup is wrapped in a tag.
13. Support for importing custom-built eSpeak dictionaries.
NOTE: When enabling eSpeak, you will get a message stating "This speech synthesis engine may be able to collect all the text that will be spoken, including personal data like passwords and credit card numbers. It comes from the eSpeak engine. Enable the use of this speech synthesis engine?". This is a standard warning issued by Android devices for accessibility software that comes from an external source.
The eSpeak engine does not collect any data in the text passed to it. All the source code to the core eSpeak engine and the Android port is available for you to verify this if you are concerned.
