Speak to file

An action block that speaks a message using text-to-speech (TTS) to an audio file.

The fiber will pause until the audio file has been saved.

Use the Speak block for direct audio playback.

The path can be set to an existing or new file, or to a directory where the file will be placed with an automatic name. The path to the actual WAV audio file generated is assigned to the audio file variable.
