Using Text to Speech

Text Fiction is able to read the storyboard to you. You only need to have a working Text to Speech engine installed and check the option in the settings (NOTE: Text fiction has no means to detect the language of a game. You have to set your TTS language manually).

When TTS is enabled, Text Fiction will automatically read out new bubbles as they are shown on screen. To silence the narrator, touch empty space within a bubble. To restart narration, long press empty space in a bubble.

Voice recognition is not supported by Text Fiction itself. This is due to the fact that current day Android devices lack the computing power required for this and therefore rely on Google servers to do the actual signal processing. This raises numerous privacy concerns, costs bandwidth and also has a noticeable delay. If you really want spoken input, the suggested work around is to install a keyboard app with voice recognition capabilities.
