Text-to-speech in Portuguese (and Chinese?)


I'm a teacher in a polyglot school where we teach French, English, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese. I've created an application that allows teachers to provide individual support to beginners. It uses the text-to-spech module. I was able to configure one instance of text-to-spech in French, one in Spanish and one in English. However, I was unable to create an instance in Portuguese or Chinese.

Although I know that in Portuguese it's possible.

But in this example, it works because it's the default language...

I hadn't paid much attention to the only languages available in the drop-down list, as it seemed obvious to me that MIT APP Inventor was going to use the artificial voice modules present on the phone anyway.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks in advance!

here is how you can do part in Vietnamese ,How can I convert voice to text in Vietnamese

you would do something similar for Portuguese and Chinese if those languages are available on the Android version you are using

Another example for Turkish
