Description
Trados TTS provides two new features for Trados Studio:

1. Text to Speech capability
2. Footpedal support

Full details of the plugin and how it works can be found in the RWS Community Wiki.

Text to Speech
Trados TTS (Text to Speech) is a plugin which allows you to listen to the audio of a segment (source or target) or to the entire file.
We use the Microsoft Azure Text to Speech solution which is available through their Cognitive Services to generate the audio file, and through this we offer many features:
- set a default to play source OR target
- use keyboard shortcuts to toggle between source/target
- use keyboard shortcuts for common requirements when using Text to Speech
- change the reading speed
- change the reading voice (based on what is offerred by Microsoft)
- map unsupported languages to be able to play any variant of a supported language
- control what's read when working with track changes

Footpedal Support
The plugin currently only supports footpedals using the USB HID driver supplied by VEC.
An example would be the Infinity USB Foot Pedal (IN-USB-2) which is easily obtained through Amazon for example. However, if you have a footpedal that supports programmable inputs then you could map it to the keyboard shorcuts in Studio.
The main actions provided by the supported footpedals are:

Right pedal - move to the next segment. If you hold the pedal down you will navigate through the segments automatically until you release the pedal.
Left pedal - move to the previous segment. If you hold the pedal down you will navigate through the segments automatically until you release the pedal.
Middle pedal - Play/ Pause the sound. To hear the audio playback press and hold the middle pedal. To pause the audio simply release the foot pedal.
