TTS is separate home assistant integration that will play through any configured media player.

thanks for your reply,
I have one Windows Pc and one linux machine (hass.io on docker)
What kind of software I can install in the pc to be a media player from point of view of home assistant ?

As long as you have home assistant open in a web browser on the device you could use this:

Do we need to say it louder? music player daemon. https://www.musicpd.org/doc/html/user.html#compiling-for-windows

TTS typically returns an mp3 ( in my experience) therefor any media player daemon will work, such as…MPD.
