Free Text-To-Speech and Text-to-MP3 for Portuguese
Easily convert your text in Portuguese into professionally spoken voice for free. Please note: This is not a translation service.
Our voices are simply pronouncing the texts in the corresponding language and/or with a specific accent. Plus, these texts can be downloaded as MP3. In some languages, multiple speakers are available.
If you can't hear anything: Turn on your speakers :-)
Hint: If you finish a sentence, leave a space after the dot before the next one starts for better pronounciation.
Here are some features to use while generating speech:
Add a break
Mary had a little lamb <break time="1s"/> Whose fleece was white as snow.

For dramatic purposes, you might wish to <prosody rate="slow">slow down the speaking rate of your text.</prosody>
Or if you are in a hurry <prosody rate="fast">your may want to speed it up a bit.</prosody>

<amazon:effect name="whispered">If you make any noise, </amazon:effect> she said, <amazon:effect name="whispered">they will hear us.</amazon:effect>
It is possible to switch between speakers within the text. Just use the following format:
[speaker:Brian] Hello Emma
[speaker:Emma] Hey Brian
[speaker:Brian] How are you doing?
[speaker:Emma] I am fine. May i invite you to a cup of tea?

The Portuguese Language History
The Portuguese language is a Latin descendant, and it was brought to Iberian Peninsula in 218BC by Roman soldiers, merchants, and settlers. In the 9th century AD, the first sigh of Portuguese word was recorded in a romance letter. And in 1920 king Denis decreed a change of Portuguese language that was known as the "Vulgar Language" to Portuguese language and pronounced it as an official language. Other languages that have influenced the Portuguese language include French, and this is due to the extensive infiltration of the French customs and manners in Portugal during the eleventh centuries. During that period the Frenchmen traveled to Portugal as scholars, state men, and courtiers.
The Reformed Language
The reformed Portuguese language was adopted in 1916, and the words spelled according to their pronunciation. And in Brazil, a slightly modified form was approved in 1943 and later revised to a more natural version in 1970 and 2009 a new orthography to unite the written Portuguese was adopted.
The Portuguese vowels have a French pronunciation making it easy for those who know Spanish, French and Italian learn the language faster, and the alphabets do not have the K, W, and Y.
