speech synthesis

Refers to a computer's ability to produce sound that resembles human speech. Although they can't imitate the full spectrum of human cadences and intonations, speech synthesis systems can read text files and output them in a very intelligible, if somewhat dull, voice. Many systems even allow the user to choose the type of voice -- for example, male or female. Speech synthesis systems are particularly valuable for seeing-impaired individuals.
