I’m running Home Assistant on a Mac mini and wanted to use its built-in text-to-speech. The tts is especially nice because it’s local (and therefore fast and private), and because the quality is pretty good.
So I’ve implemented two custom components, one for the tts and one to play the resulting media locally.
These still need to be cleaned up to pass the
tox tests before they can be considered for inclusion into the distribution. Meanwhile, let me know whether they work for you.
