Özet

In this research, an already available English Text To Speech application (used for reading text with voice on computer environment) was interpreted to work with French language and French words. By using Java programming language and the means that the Voce API (Application Programming Interface) provides, the string object that the Text to Speech application uses as an input will be modified manually and is going to be forced to work as a French Text To Speech application. Special pronounciation incidents such as extended vovels and liasons will also be evaluated and added to the result. In the end, 63 out ot 72 words defined and pronounced at the application were pronounced correctly and 87.5% overall success rate was achieved.
