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

Converts your text into a robot voice which is downloadable as an audio clip!

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.

The software behind this app is a JavaScript version of the eSpeak library which was originally written in C. All thanks goes to @kripken for porting the software to JavaScript so it works in your browser!

In natural speech, there are many subtle inflections, pauses, and amplitude modulations that are used to convey emotion and properly give emphasis to the right parts of a sentence. This things are very hard to write into a program because they are much more subtle than the pitch/harmonic modulations that make up our syllable sounds.

As such, early attempts at machine voice generation sounded very monotone and robotic. eSpeak was one such attempt, and happily, it now (more than 20 years later) allows us to produce this fun robotic text to speech app.

If you’re old enough, you might remember “Microsoft Sam” – the robotic sounding voice which could read things out in Microsoft Word, and help you navigate Windows. I had a lot of fun as a kid making Microsoft Sam say all sorts of silly things, and so I figured I’d make this so that the younger generations can enjoy the same thing.

I hope you have fun with it! It might even be useful to someone – who knows! Maybe as a weird MLG voice for a YouTube video, or as an electronic voice generator for DJs? I’d love to hear what you’re using it for in the comments! 🙂 If I can do anything to improve it, or if theres a similar translator that you want me to make, please let me know in the comments! Thanks 🙂

BioTek’s robotic instruments can help automate workflows in your laboratory. Gen5 and LHC Software add power and flexibility to imaging, detection and liquid handling processes.

Many life science workflows benefit from expanded automation, for increased throughput or process efficiency. BioTek offers unique automation solutions that integrate with our microplate washers, dispensers, readers and imagers. BioStack is a compact stacker that offers fast plate exchange options for 50 plates or more, and patented plate de-lidding and re-lidding with BioStack 4 .

BioSpa 8 Automated Incubator links BioTek readers or imagers together with washers and dispensers for full workflow automation of up to 8 microplates. Temperature, CO2/O2 and humidity levels are controlled and monitored through the BioSpa software to maintain an ideal environment for cell cultures during all experimental stages.

BioTek’s imaging, detection and liquid handling instruments offer superior performance, reliability and versatility. Gen5 Microplate Reader and Imager Software provides intuitive control for all imaging and detection systems, with powerful data analysis and flexible output capabilities. Microplate stacking operations are also controlled through Gen5 for imaging and detection.

LHC software offers complete programming and control over microplate washing and dispensing operations, including stacking operations when interfaced with BioStack.

Both LHC and Gen5 software are provided in several versions, including 21 CFR Part 11 compliant editions of each. LHC software is also available with drivers for integration into SiLA compliant automated systems.

When controlled by our software products, those characteristics are greatly enhanced.

Automation is a key feature in high-throughput screening. BMG LABTECH has designed all of its microplate readers to be easily integrated into automated systems.

All BMG LABTECH microplate readers have the same x-y dimensions and plate out/in locations. Therefore, once automation hardware has been designed for one BMG LABTECH microplate reader, the solution will work for all BMG LABTECH microplate readers. This standardized footprint minimizes the cost of automation solutions for customers.

BMG LABTECH’s microplate readers can be controlled through ActiveX, DDE and SiLA interfaces. All interfaces are fully documented and manuals are included with our software. BMG LABTECH’s reader control language for basic commands has remained consistent and early drivers can execute basic functions (i.e. plate in, plate out and read) even on the most advanced readers.

For more complex tasks, BMG LABTECH’s experienced software team will work with customers to help design any automation solution. There are many automation software features that allow flexibility without any programming – the ASCII data output is the most versatile in the industry and works with most LIMS and automation platforms.
