|Title:||Google "Translate" text-to-speech|
Still new to ShoutIRC and playing around with the options and plugins, and I really love it. Great job!
One request which would be really nice, if you can manage to add Google Translate text-to-speech as an alternative to eSpeak and festival. Hopefully I don't insult anybody if I say that those voices are terrible. (Or haven't found the "perfect" settings yet.)
While Google Translate, which also uses eSpeak internally but with much better voices, in general has a clear understandable voice.
Even in multiple languages:
There is no official API available, but it appears that the output is a MP3 file: http://techcrunch.com/2009/12/14/the-unofficial-google-text-to-speech-api/
Because there is no official API there is always a chance, if you got this working, that it will stop working some day. A small risk for a large improvement!
