Gambas would benefit enormously from a speech synthesis
object. Such an object would facilitate programming for
education, utility, entertainment, eLearning and for
the vision-disabled.

Such a speech object could expose attributes and
properties for voice quality, pitch, intonation. These
attributes could be set by the programmer, thereby
altering the "voice" of the speech object.

A programmer could set properties and attributes on the
voice object to change its voice to male or female. The
voice could even be tuned to sound like unique people.

This re-usable speech object could be instantiated
multiple times to create a "conversation" of multiple
voices.

I recall that the Amiga computers incorporated speech
synthesis for the basic programmer, and it was truly
powerful.

If Gambas provided, I would definitely use it!
