AWS Polly for voices.

I work with AWS (Amazon Web Services) at work and today they released something called Polly (https://aws.amazon.com/polly/). It looks like they bought Ivona TTS service and monetized it for the web. There are plenty of guides online for how to setup an AWS account and installing the required AWS cli command. There is a free tier I believe for Polly as well. This would probably be easy to setup for TTS as well but I don't have a lot of dynamic text yet so I just save the MP3s locally. You can use the AWS console to create one off phrases and save them as MP3's or several other formats.

I created a bash script (requires bash 4+) to create a bunch of phrases in different english voices and I tested it on my Mac. I figured it would be a good starting place for anyone interested, it was quickly assembled by googling AWS CLI commands and bash commands. It is not pretty and not sure if it will run on Windows at all but figured it may help someone somehow.

Here is the gist:
