Here is something you might find interesting. This is a HTML5 text to speech shoutbox . This works best for chrome browser, and is a recent addition to HTML5. This is quite a useful little program that you might want to know better. It's more of a toy at the moment, but I'm sure you can still find use for it.

Source Code: http://briankhuu.com/shoutbox/src/

Version list:
V7 - reducing polling, and ability to turn off TTS
V6 - Shows last updated
V5 - Fixed crash when not find TTS
V4 - Generate time elapsed since last post
V3 - Limit number of stored post to 100 posts.
V2 - Generate last updated status image
V1 - Start of first working shoutbox


This is a mish mash of various codes to make a good platform for semi real time speech synth chatroom (Which would be good for web radio etc...)

Mashup of codes by Brian Khuu (briankhuu.com) 2014

Usage: Place these files into a properly configered php webserver in /shoutbox/ folder (script must be able to create files). Then run either shoutbox.html for a low speed shoutbox (updates every 10 sec), and shoutbox_TTS.html for a highspeed shoutbox(3 sec update) with Text To Speech of any incoming messages.

Concept: To possibly allow for semi-realtime conversation without having to read the messages. E.g. hosting a radio interview behind TOR
