We’ve given our little Translate and Speak app for Windows a complete makeover. Our app not only translates text but also vocalizes messages from the message window using online services. We’ve introduced a user-friendly GUI to simplify configuration, extended support to include paid translation services, and here’s the grand reveal… you can now empower any Windows AAC app to leverage Google Cloud TTS or Azure TTS which massively opens up the possibility of using AAC with more languages. You can even use these services without translation - so just to speak.

Get your hands on the early version here. BUT - just a heads up, you will need to be comfortable obtaining keys for Azure or Google Cloud. Check out our (somewhat outdated) docs for guidance. And ping me some feedback before we release it properly. Prizes for someone who can make me a nice demo video!
