Talkinator is one of the first Windows 10 universal apps, with native compatibility on desktops, mobile devices and Xbox One consoles. It uses a text-to-speech technology to convert spoken words into text. Additionally, the app can transform your original voice using some preset effects.

While Talkinator now comes as an open source app, it is yet to be available on developer-focused platforms such as Linux and Android. However, you can use the newly released code and build your own experience for any of the two open source platforms.
