Wrapper for AWS Polly with segmentation, playback queue and client-server setup

Project description


python-polly is a simple wrapper around AWS's text-to-speech service Polly.

Features are:

  • Cache requests to AWS Polly locally
  • Tokenize input text into sentences or words in order to maximize usage of cache
  • Playback queue for audio output
  • Client-server setup to support concurrent output by multiple applications


pip install --user python-polly[server]

Most of the dependencies are only required by the server so I put them in as an extra option. To get the dependencies for the server use python-polly[server] otherwise just python-polly.



Start the server. Default port is 6000.

polly server



polly say "hello world"


import polly.client
polly.client.say('hello world')

Any other JSON-RPC client e.g. cURL

curl -d '{"id": "null", "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "say", "params": ["hello", "Joanna", "sentence", true]}' localhost:6000
