Oh well, great minds think alike!
EDIT: Similarly, this uses Google's Text to Speech (https://cloud.google.com/text-to-speech/). If this gets some traction I would love to develop my own TTS model using WaveNet (https://deepmind.com/blog/wavenet-generative-model-raw-audio...), since the TTS API is super expensive.
- The Edge browser text-to-speech feature sounds stilted and robotic, and I personally would not want to listen to it for an hour. The TTS converter than I am using sounds better, but costs money. Check out the demos at the bottom of the landing page for some examples.
- My service costs $2 AUD per hour, not $12 per hour.
