New block- Speak or Say

It would be cool to have a new block called speak or say. This way, we can input text and have the program speak it. I’ve done this with JavaScript, where the code is speak(“Hello World!”); (string) or speak(value); (variable)
A place where this would be useful:
Set value (what-to-say) = 5
Speak(what-to-say);

This is not proper JavaScript, I didn’t feel like writing it all out but you get the idea

Grrrrreat idea! That way if you wanted to record sounds, it would be like this but without moderation

Well, only if them implement things that you can not say, such as bad words or offensive words

Yeah. The filter would work, unlike THT would have to listen to voice input

This will be kinda…uhhh…dangerous because people can type in things that exactly sound like bad words but the text is not the bad word, if you get what i’m saying
