"TextToSpeech" does seem better than "TTS".  Some other options include "SpeechSynthesis" and "SpeechSynthesizer".   Kind regards, AdamFrom: gshires@google.com

Subject: Rename "TTS" object to "TextToSpeech"

I propose we rename the "TTS" object "TextToSpeech".
There seems to be agreement that TTS is too short [1], and is an acronym that may not be familiar to some developers.
TextToSpeech adds clarity, while still being reasonably short and easy to spell.
