@psychobunny Hey! Good to see you're still out there lol. I used to do some modding on phpBB3, and had ported a good portion of ADR to the phpBB3 system about the time you started on this project, it looks like. I would love to get in touch and see if we could maybe continue this project, or if you'd be willing to collaborate on something similar.
Speech plugin that reads post for you
More of an idea than anything.. would there be a use for this ? I have seen quite a few websites offering this service for free and the translation is quite human like and sounds ok. I have used it for assignments when I can't be bothered reading long research articles and it makes reading a bit less boring.
If this was implemented would it be useful in a forum? How could it be implemented - my idea would be to just incorporate it inline in posts as some sort of audio icon, simple , user hardly notices it but its there to serve a purpose.
Kind of example, has been done before in wordpress, but this is full scale one by the looks for vision impaired.

It could be useful. In the past I have used Opera's built-in voice engine and it worked great.
If you think about naturally sounding voices it would be nice to add language selection.
