Voice Out Small App, Simple TTS Client
I wrote a Sony Small App to use the Android built-in TTS engine.
It's basically a TTS Client and I hope that someone will find it useful!
It's free and Ad-free!
Download at Google Play

Voice Out is a simple Text-to-speech client that makes your device speak texts with the Android Text-to-speech Engine (TTS). Your phone must be capable to run Small Apps and have a Text-to-Speech engine to make it work.
To check if you have a Text-to-speech Engine installed, go to Settings -> Accessibility -> System -> Text-to-speech output.
Tested on Sony Xperia Z Ultra with the following TTS Engines:
- Google Text-to-speech Engine
- Pico TTS
- Ekho TTS (余音), for Cantonese and Mandarin support
This small application access your device clipboard to get the copied text so you don't need to paste it manually.
This small application can be minimized or moved around the screen.
Small apps extension for Sony products.
For the users who doesn't have a device with Small Apps support can always try the Voice Out for Android 2.1 and up available here:
