Let’s make our own AudioBook with python. We do simple text to speech using python. For that, we get a text from our pdf. Instead of reading the pdf why you can’t convert it in AudioBook. Let’s do this.
pyttsx3 python module.
pyttsx3 is a text-to-speech conversion library in Python. Unlike alternative libraries, it works offline and is compatible with both Python 2 and 3. Full doc: https://pyttsx3.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
To install this write following command in your terminal
pip install pyttsx3
On Linux make sure espeak is installed.
To extract text from pdf we use
PyPDF2 python module. To install this write following command in your terminal
pip install PyPDF2
import pyttsx3 import PyPDF2 book = open("/home/arpit/Desktop/python_tutorial.pdf", "rb") pdf_reader = PyPDF2.PdfFileReader(book) # if pdf contains more then one pages pages = pdf_reader.numPages print("Total Pages: ", pages) speaker = pyttsx3.init() # initialization speaker.setProperty("rate", 125) # set speaking speed for page_num in range(pages): print("Current page: ", page_num + 1) page = pdf_reader.getPage(page_num) # getting each pages from pdf text = page.extractText() # extracting text from current page # print(text) speaker.say(text) # now extract text will passed here to listen speaker.runAndWait()
