Text To Speech (TTS) with Ruby and PHP

I was working with some scripts for having my PC talk. The first one is in Ruby:

require "win32/sapi5"
include Win32
v = SpVoice.new
v.Speak("this is the easiest thing to do since I have started working with ruby..")

Now this one in PHP:

$tts = new COM("SAPI.SpVoice");
$tts->speak("this is a test");
