Festvox is not as fantastic as the other three but it is a project of the speech group of Carnegie Mellon University. The speech quality and tool on this site is a bit old fashioned and sounds like a robot. However, if you just want a translation of your text into speech, it can do it promptly.

Though there is no limit on the characters you upload, make sure you do not enter vast texts as it will not support massive conversion at once. Another fault is, even if you get to choose the format, it will only produce your audio in a WAV format. After you provide your text and choose a voice, tap on the Synthesize button to start the download. In case your file appears to be of 0KB, that would mean you have used enough characters. Now you’ll have to start again with less text.
