Speak Japanese to me!
This is amazing. Paste or type some Japanese text into the box above. It will take you to Smartlink, a company that makes translation software, and will speak your text in a very natural voice.
Here is a pre-loaded text if you can’t think of anything to write.
But notice that it can’t read 二羽［にわ］in this tongue twister. It reads it as にはね instead.
I think this might even be good enough for listening practice, and shadowing.
Compare the voice to these older voices using MacInTalk.
I’m guessing that this voice is Miyu – 16khz Japanese Female from NeoSpeech. Unfortunately not available on the Macintosh but it will work on Windows.
