The main objective of this paper is to convert written English discourse into machine-generated comprehensive conversation. This paper is proposed to provide a complete speech synthesis for English text information. The main application of the Text-To-Voice (TTV) system is to help people with comprehension through having the text read to them by computer software. The TTV system will help in retrieving data from sites that contain information in different language styles. The system has been successfully developed for English-literature discourse. A voice-based series connection was used, which reduced the con-chaining points and hence minimized error. The synthesis was tested on expert listeners to ascertain its quality.
