MWSpeaker project is the worst speech synthesis software ever.
You provide a phrase, and MWSpeaker looks up each word in Merriam-Webster's online dictionary, downloads the corresponding pronounciations, and plays them in sequence.
M-W Speaker takes a phrase (no punctuation please), takes each work, looks it up on the Meriam Webster website, downloads the sound file, and then, once it has sound files for each word in the phrase, plays them all back to back.
The result is something that resembles the sentence with any proper names and words not considered proper english words removed. This process is pretty slow since each word has to be looked up and the sound file downloaded by hey :)
This is mostly just for fun. I see no practical use for this whatsoever.
It's written in Python.
