Project description

Author: Arezqui Belaid and Joshua Patten
Description:Microsoft Translator API module for Python

Microsoft Speech Bing Documentation:

Python Bing Speech

python-msspeak is a library to synthesize text into human sounding speech using Microsoft Cognitive Services.

In order to utilize this service you must sign up for Microsoft Cognitive service and register an application. More information on creating a Microsoft account is located at the getting started with Text to Speech page.


A quick-and-dirty script to utilize the python-msspeak library.

from msspeak import msspeak

subscription_key = 'XXXXXXXXXXXX'

tts_msspeak = msspeak.MSSpeak(subscription_key, '/tmp/')
output_filename = tts_msspeak.speak("This is the text I will speak to you", "en-US")

print ("Recorded TTS to %s" % output_filename)


Install, upgrade and uninstall with these commands:

$ pip install python-msspeak
$ pip install --upgrade python-msspeak
$ pip uninstall python-msspeak

Example usage and output


$ python-msspeak --subscription_key=<subscription_key> -t <text> [-d <directory>] [-url <service_url>] [-h]


$ msspeak --subscription_key=XXXXXXXXX -t "Salut, Vous vous appelez comment?" -l fr

Output :

$ Recorded TTS to /tmp/MSTRANSLATE-8895934760117809679-fr.mp3
