Google Translate Text-to-Speech


The google_translate text-to-speech platform uses the unofficial Google Translate Text-to-Speech engine to read a text with natural sounding voices. Contrary to what the name suggests, the integration only does text-to-speech and does not translate messages sent to it.

Configuration

To enable text-to-speech with Google, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
tts:
  - platform: google_translate

Configuration Variables

language string (Optional, default: en)

The default speech language to use.

Check the complete list of supported languages (languages where “Talk” feature is enabled in Google Translate) for allowed values. Use the 2 digit language code which you can find at the end of URL when you click on Language name.

For more information about using text-to-speech with Home Assistant and more details on all the options it provides, see the TTS documentation.
