  I liked SpeechSynthesizer because it went well with SpeechRecognizer.  But I don't 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.
