First we need to create the object of TextToSpeech class. Its constructor takes two arguments, first argument is the reference of current activity and in the second argument we have to specify the listener. The setLanguage() method is used to specify the language, it takes Locale object as argument. The Locale object can be US, UK, CHINA, etc. Finally the speech() method is used to convert the text to speech, it takes three parameters or arguments. The first argument is the text that we want to convert, second argument takes constant QUEUE_FLUSH and third argument takes null.

Below I have given the whole code for doing this. The package name is com.texttospeech.
