Add Speech to your Website using the BOT libre TTS JavaScript SDK

The BOT libre JavaScript SDK provides free dynamic access to all of BOT libre's services including chat bots, live chat, chat rooms, forums, and speech. The speech API for the SDK can be used in conjunction with chat bots, live chat, or on its own.

The speech API is part of the BOT libre JavaScript API.
To add the BOT libre JavaScript SDK to your webpage you just need to import it in your webpage's <head> section.

The speech API is SDK.tts(text, voice). The text is the text you would like converted to voice, and the voice is the voice you would like to use. A voice is not required, if none is passed, the default voice is used. There are currently 20 voices available in several languages. You can test the voices here.
