Typical Applications for the DFRobot Speech Synthesis Shield:

The DFRobot Speech Synthesis Shield utilises the XFS5051CE speech synthesis chip from IFLYTEK, which is surprisingly powerful and can connect up to proprietary software like navigation apps and weather forecast software. This allows you to add hands-free functionality to your Electronics projects, letting you communicate with your projects without ever requiring a display unit. And because these shields are completely Arduino compatible, they can be integrated into a wide range of different projects from onboard vehicle navigation systems to smart wearables.

So, whether you want to upgrade an existing project with hands-free voice functionality, build a brand new project based on text-to-speech technology, or simply want to free up some unnecessary screen space on a project that doesn’t need it, this DFRobot Speech Synthesis Shield is one of the best value-for-money tools for the job!
