I want to be able to pass a string to a web server like

127.0.0.3/speak?words=Hello%world

And have the computer (that hosts the web server) read those words aloud

Does such a program exist?

Prefer windows but not limited to it.

I know I can build it manually putting together apache and AutoMate but I prefer an all in one program.

There are dozen of screenreader/tts frameworks that can read English text aloud.
Usually one pre-records phrases because computer voices still sound robotic.

I'm not sure how that relates but I have resolved the issue using a perl script (HTTP Daemon, windows TTS speech).

Thank you
