I have a Video file with a Text frame that has name of a customer.The customer's name is dynamically picked from a csv file. I have written a Java script to do the same.
I want to call an API (text to speech) that can call out (play) the name of the customer.
Do i need a plugin?
AE does not have Text to Speach functionality, therefore there's no such API for it.
Is it possible to call Web API's like a google Text to speech API?
The documentation doesn't have much information on API's
AE has limited to zero realtime capabilities, so even pondering about this is pointless. There would be simply no way to generate an audio file and place it on the timeline. Whatever scenario you have dreamed up wil lrequire a completely different approach using other tools.

Were you able to crack it? I am trying to do the same - exploring the various possibilities. I know after effect doesn't have much on this side.
