How much does it cost ?

It cost a five star Review, just kiding, it’s free.
Note : If you use the Google TTS, you’ll need to give your banking informations to Google and you can be charged if you use it a lot, however SayIt! is using a smart caching system, so it request Google only for new voice Generation.

Can I mix language ?

Yes you can ! In the settings, you choose the default language to use but you can pass parameter in the shortcodes like so [sayit lang=”fr-FR”]Bonjour[/sayit]
Note that you can’t mix language yet if you are using Google TTS.

Do you collect any data?

No, coding something to collect data is kind of complicated, no time for that.

To activate either Google or Amazon you have to submit your credit card and you have to pay at some stage if you use it. I could not make the HTML5 work at all.

Hi! thanks for your plugin. I would like to add that it would be great if you, in addition to pronunciation, added the ability to show the translation of a word in another language (make the language selection setting). Thanks!

After trying out several TTS plugins for WP, my choice became Say It!. Not in the first place while it's a free plugin, but mainly for its options to use either HTML5 browser voices, or Google-TTF or Amazon Polly. Through the shortcodes the plugin is easy to use at a multilingual website and both whole page texts or selected blocks can be marked for read out loud. Last, but certainly not least, the author gave me good and friendly support and updated his plugin also to the current version of WP (5.5.3 while writing this).

For me, Say It! is the best free WordPress TTS plugin out there! Very simple settings, extremely light-weight, visually pleasing UI (love that small red play button), can speak any selected text in your blog post, does the job so well on both desktop and mobile phone. Thanks for making this great plugin! It definitely deserves a 5 star!
