From your description, you may be looking for something a little more robust than simple TTS capabilities. Would an AAC app (for a mobile device) be appropriate? Many premium apps like Verbally and ProloQuoToGo (iOS) feature word prediction algorithms and are highly customizable:

Free\low cost AAC apps are available, but typically have less features and may be visually designed for children (less appealing to adults).

An instructor of ours has had an unexpected health event that will leave him without a voice for a while. We are starting to investigate some text to speech readers that he can use in his classroom to communicate with his students. I am turning to the experts for any suggestions.
Your comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
