Text to speech app size
Does using libraries like OpenEars will drastically enlarge my app size? Or I can just extract the text to speech stuff, and get away with it...Probably removing all those langs? I don't have any idea.
I checked and OpenEars sample app is 33MB - which is big!
So my question is - can I implement text to speech in my app without compromising the size so much? I mean I can live with 2-3 MBs but 30...
OpenEars developer here. Just follow the instructions here to reduce your final app size, there's no need to ship all the voices or any features of the framework that you aren't making use of. Depending on which voices you're using and which feature, you might see an app size increase of between 6 megs and ~20 unless you're using a large number of the available voices. The sample app uses all of the framework features and two voices, and supports a few iOS versions, so its binary size reflects that.
