Microsoft Sam Online

Feel free to use the generated audio for any of your projects (commercial or personal). It’s free! Hope it’s useful for you 🙂

This online tool lets you generate a Microsoft Sam style voice (not the exact original) that you can play and download easily.

Just wait for it to load (it may take a minute or so as it’s a 2mb piece of software) then type your text in the box and click "Speak". You can download the speech by clicking the link that will appear under the "Speak" button.

Old-school text to speech is great fun to play around with. Try testing it on long or hard to pronounce words, use it to narrate your silly YouTube video, post it as a message to a friend’s facebook wall – the possibilities are endless.

All thanks goes to @kripken for porting the library to JavaScript!

If there’s anything I can do to improve "Microsoft Sam Online", please let me know!

Note: I was alerted in the comments to the fact that this is not quite the Microsoft Sam voice! It’s apparently the voice synthesizer used by Ubuntu. I’ll keep my eye out for a JavaScript port of the actual Microsoft Sam voice and update this translator if I find it. Until then I hope that you found this page mainly looking for a general computerised voice rather than the exact Microsoft Sam accent. Sorry for the inconvenience!
