    You can do TTS using client-side javascript and the Microsoft Speech API (which is built into Windows XP, and downloadable for 2K and 98)

    In IE you can do it through an ActiveX control, so it will obviously only work in a trusted environment, or an HTA. The MS speech site is the place to start with that - http://www.microsoft.com/speech/

    And for FF there's a guy who's written a .dll and Javascript API that communicates between the browser and the windos speech api, so using that you can write TTS applications for anyone who installs the .dll - check here for info http://clc-4-tts.cjb.net/
