text to speech
#1
Fellow Python Users,

I want to put several words in a list. Then tell Python to say the word.

I did some searches on text to speech. I found 2 lines of code which do not work. Does anyone have an idea of what is wrong?

#This is a way to use text to speech from a windows PC
from win32com.client import Dispatch
speak = Dispatch("SAPI.SpVoice")
speak.Speak("Ciao")
#This is a way to use text to speech if you have windows 10 and Python 3
import win32com.client as wincl
speak = wincl.Dispatch("SAPI.SpVoice")
speak.Speak("This is the pc voice speaking")
The error message I get is: C:\Users\Joe\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\python.exe: can't open file 'C:/Users/Joe/PycharmProjects/myproj.py/ran.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I have no idea what the file ran.py is.

You done a double name .py extension save,can not have both myproj.py and ran.py.
Create and run your first Python project

I couldn't find the double name extension save so I uninstalled Python and Pycharm, installed them again and started a new file. Now the error message is that there is no 'win32com' module. I have Windows 10. Shouldn't I have that module?

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:/Users/Joe/PycharmProjects/Myproject/texttospeech.py", line 2, in <module>
from win32com.client import Dispatch
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'win32com'

Process finished with exit code 1

I did the following installation as instructed by snippsat.

pip install pywin32

It installed successfully. It told me that the installation was an older version, so I did the installation of the newer version.

I ran the following two codes.

#This is a way to use text to speech if you have python 3 and windows 10
import win32com.client as wincl
speak = wincl.Dispatch("SAPI.SpVoice")
speak.Speak("This is the pc voice speaking")
#This is a way to use text to speech from a windows PC
from win32com.client import Dispatch
speak = Dispatch("SAPI.SpVoice")
speak.Speak("Ciao")
Both codes gave me an error saying that win32 was not installed.


I tried to install pywin32 again and it told me it was already installed.

Anyone have an idea of what I did wrong?

Have you tried espeak? It't works well on linux. Haven't tried on windows.
I welcome all feedback.
The only dumb question, is one that doesn't get asked.

As you use PyCharm most choose right interpreter.
Configure a Python interpreter PyCharm
So for you this is the path.
C:\Users\Joe\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\python.exe
Also look here,make sure that python and pip command work from cmd.

Learn to run and install from command line,it's a important part of basic programming skill.
Quick example in cmder,same in cmd.
C:\
λ cd code

# Test python 
C:\code
λ python -V
Python 3.8.3

# Test pip
C:\Code
λ pip -V
pip 20.1.1 from c:\python38\lib\site-packages\pip (python 3.8)

# Install
C:\code
λ pip install pywin32
Requirement already satisfied: pywin32 in c:\python38\lib\site-packages (228)

# Look at code,use <more> in cmd
C:\code
λ cat ciao.py
from win32com.client import Dispatch

speak = Dispatch("SAPI.SpVoice")
speak.Speak("Ciao")

# Run code and it works
C:\code
λ python ciao.py

I tried to run the C prompt commands that you gave me. I believe the output is the same as yours until I tried to run cat ciao.py. As you can see this resulted in an error. I changed the directory to where this file is located and it also resulted in an error. So I understand the first 3 commands, but I don't understand cat ciao.py.

C:\Users\Joe>cd\

C:\>python -V
Python 3.8.3

C:\>pip -V
pip 20.1.1 from c:\users\joe\appdata\local\programs\python\python38-32\lib\site-packages\pip (python 3.8)

C:\>pip install pywin32
Requirement already satisfied: pywin32 in c:\users\joe\appdata\local\programs\python\python38-32\lib\site-packages (228)
C:\>cat ciao.py
'cat' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

C:\>cd\users\joe\pycharmprojects\myproject

C:\Users\Joe\PycharmProjects\Myproject>cat ciao.py
'cat' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch

Look one more time what i write Wink
snippsat Wrote:# Look at code,use <more> in cmd
So it's like this in cmd.
C:\>cd code

# look at file
C:\code>more ciao.py
from win32com.client import Dispatch

speak = Dispatch("SAPI.SpVoice")
speak.Speak("Ciao")

# Run file
C:\code>python ciao.py 

C:\code>
cat is Linux command,so when i use cmder can use cat as it feel much more natural than the cmd commands for me.

The file ciao is in the directory \Users\Joe\PycharmProjects\Myproject So I did the following 2 command prompts commands from that directory.

C:\Users\Joe\PycharmProjects\Myproject>more ciao.py

#This is a way to use text to speech from a windows PC
from win32com.client import Dispatch
speak = Dispatch("SAPI.SpVoice")
speak.Speak("Ciao")

C:\Users\Joe\PycharmProjects\Myproject>python ciao.py

So for the first command it showed what my code is.

And the second command did work & I heard the word "ciao".

I am wondering if it has to do if how I have my interpreter set up in Pycharm.
