Text-to-Speech Translation by Google

Google Translate provides the ability to hear translations spoken out loud by clicking a speaker icon beside some translations.

The feature provides support for French, Spanish, Italian, German, Hindi, and Haitian Creole.

With the recent addition of the eSpeak speech synthesizer, Google Translate now provides serviceable — if not perfect — speech for Greek, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Latvian, Macedonian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, and more than one dozen other languages.
