Google TTS Workaround
I know that Google Text-To-Speech is “locked” by captcha since ~2nd half of 2016, but there are still web applications that are able to avoid this tricky solution.
I found 2 of them:
The first app store inserted phrases and provide them for download since someone searched them. (stored somewhere, for unknow time period)
So a lot of basic english words are stored here, if you replace end of link. (I tried - animals, numbers, common furniture…)
Can some developer please take a look if there is possible way to use these web applications for relevant use of TTS in Rpi/MM (REST, URL params, HTML parsing?..), since both of them are using Google TTS, thats provide more languages than eng only and moreover it is the best avaible quallity of TTS for any other language.
Since i wrote this thread somebody found a way how to Use Googe TTS in easy way by adding some different URL Structure and new Parameters so i Would like to share this Answer with you.
