In a maker magazin I found some ideas how to create a speech output.
To me it looked complex and expensive in terms of power, money etc.
So I created my own solution.
At the end its a small and cheap MP3 board which holds short mp3 files and is controlled by Espruino. Actual status is "working fine for me".
Wow, thanks - those look like really neat parts. They're basically the same price as a Micro SD card breakout board!
Also, it's a really neat idea using espeak to create sound files for subsequent playback. I never even realised that was a thing!
Are they powerful enough to plug a speaker directly in to, or do you need an amplifier too?
I drive a small and cheap speaker (10 pieces for 8€) directly from MP3-Board.
You can set volume from 0 to 30.
But even 30 is not very noisy.
I will check an amplifier (already ordered one for less than an €)
Neat... something I was looking for a while ago but did not have the times so far... What is the chip on the board? Could you pub a pic of the board?
Modul is this
I've no idea about the chip itself.
