Bare-bones text-to-audio conversion tool offers no extras.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Kids can learn how to pronounce words they enter in Spanish, Italian, Hindi, Portuguese, Catalan, and English, which can help new readers and students learning another language. Kids also can copy and paste things they've written and make edits based on how a piece sounds when read aloud, and they can watch the playing time to estimate the length of a speech. Students with different learning and linguistic backgrounds may benefit from hearing text instead of only seeing it. However, without much feedback or other learning-based content, vozMe has limited educational value.
Kids can learn how to say words in other languages, if they can type them. The site also can help them listen to text to perceive it in a different way.
The site will read swear words like "s--t" and "f--k" if kids enter them. However, users can't store files on the site, so kids won't find any recordings with bad words.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that vozMe is a simple, free website that allows users to convert text to speech. There aren't any distractions, but there's not much content, either. There's no way for kids to come into contact with other users; they simply type in words or chunks of text, choose a language, and hear the words spoken by a male or female voice. Kids also don't need to register or enter any personal information to use the site. There are more complex and visually pleasing text-to-speech sites, but vozMe works well enough.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
