Stop button in Speech in Php

All the voice speak is outputted directly in browser. I didn't find a way to pause it.

Try to use a JS script, here is an example.

Code: Select all

<textarea cols=40 rows=4 id='queueText'>
Press "Start queue text" to add text area content to the text reader. Press it multiple times to add text more than once.

Press "pause" to pause reading.

Press "play" to start or resume reading queued text from the speech synthesizer's fifo queue. Play mode is in effect at startup - but you could pause the reader before queuing text.

Press "cancel" to stop reading and empty the queue. It does not change pause versus play mode. If the reader is paused when cancel is clicked, it remains so afterwards.

This voice is the default voice in this browser, and may be different in another. More code is needed for voice selection.

Oh, and don't forget to cancel speech synthesis on window unload.
<button onclick='tr.queue(queueText.value)'>Start queue text</button>
<button onclick='tr.pause()'>Pause</button>
<button onclick=''>Play</button>
<button onclick='tr.cancel()'>Cancel</button>

const tr = {
	queue: null,
	pause: null,
	play:  null,
	cancel:  null,
	defaultRate: 1.1,
	defaultPitch: 1,
	// voice selection to do;
function createTextReader( tr) {
	let synth = window.speechSynthesis; // abbreviation
	let Utter = SpeechSynthesisUtterance; // abbreviation
	// queue
	tr.queue = (text, rate, pitch, voiceIndex) => {
		let utter = new Utter();
		utter.text = text;
		utter.rate = rate || tr.defaultRate || 1;
		utter.pitch = pitch || tr.defaultPitch || 1;
		// voice selection to do
		// if( voiceParam) ....
		synth.speak( utter);
	tr.pause = () => synth.pause(); = () => synth.resume();
	tr.cancel = () => synth.cancel();
window.addEventListener( 'DOMContentLoaded', function (e) {
createTextReader( tr)}, false);
window.addEventListener('unload', e=>tr.cancel(), false);
That is a code from stackoverflow, I have no experience with such applications.
For more answers, search on the net for: SpeechSynthesisUtterance js pause button, or ask on stackoverflow.
