Yoda is a prominent and famous fictional character in the Star Wars movies, aged 900 years and considered to be the most powerful Jedi in the Galaxy. He appeared for the first time in the film, The Empire Strikes Back in 1980. He is portrayed as extremely wise but gentle and his language syntax, voice and speech seem so different and engaging that a term has been specially coined for it called Yoda Speak.
In this article, we will be exploring 3 websites to convert Yoda text to Speech. But let’s first understand how the syntax of Yoda text differs. Yoda switches entire phrases and frequently uses sentences that are unlike the normal syntax in use. He repeatedly orders sentences in the Object-Subject-Verb sequence and sometimes uses split verbs. Due to this, it becomes difficult to precisely represent the sentence structure that he uses. So how do we create text that resembles Yoda speech.
Fortunately, there are some websites that can help us in this process and one of the most popular among them is ‘The Yoda Speak Generator’. At the outset, you must type the words / phrases that you want to convert to Yoda Speak in this generator and fashion the proper Yoda text syntax. Subsequently, you can paste this text in the Text to Yoda Speak websites listed below to generate the audio of the speech that you can download or share with others.
