A filter to provide speech synthesis (text-to-speech/ TTS) services for arbitrary text. Text such as [Speak] Hello world! [/Speak] is replaced with a button with the text as a label. Press the button, and the text is spoken!

This is beneficial, for example, when teaching younger children. And for accessibility to those with disabilities.

Requirements: tested with Moodle 1.9.7 and 2.0.2 (all Moodle 1.9.x and 2.0.x should work). Requires Javascript. Requires a TTS service - see Readme.

Uses:  jQuery (v1.3.2).

Installation

  1. Download and unzip the code files. Copy to the directory on the server, eg.
      /var/www/moodle/filter/simplespeak/
  2. Log in to Moodle as admin, visit `Site Administration | Modules | Filters | Manage Filters`. Scroll down and click on the icon for Simplespeak to enable it.
  3. Choose SimpleSpeak under Filters, and add a TTS service. Or set in config.php, eg.
    $CFG->simplespeak_service_url =
      'http://example.org/cgi-bin/espeak/getsound.pl?lang=!LANG&text=!TEXT';
    The string can contain two placeholders, !TEXT and optionally !LANG (language). This service can be local, or third-party - see Readme.
  4. Ensure that the directory $CFG->datarootis writeable by the Apache user, or create a writeable cache directory,
      $CFG->dataroot/simplespeak/cache/

Usage

Simple example. Enable the filter (admin). Then, type the following in a Moodle resource:

  [Speak] Hello world! [/Speak]

    The TTS instances forwarded to HEC could be acquired by an ad-QAD office and processed as in step with TTS policy. v. The eligibility standards and procedure as in line with TTS rules will be checked and the instances satisfying the criteria could be endorsed with the aid of the HEC via DG-QAD office.
