Example Code

This code from the above Github project shows how to read the value of a text field, set up the plugin to speak that text, and vibrate the phone for 2 seconds:

 function playVibrate() {
    var u = new SpeechSynthesisUtterance();
    var x = document.getElementById("frm1");
    var txt = "";
    txt = x.elements[0].value
    u.text = txt;
    u.lang = 'en-US';
    speechSynthesis.speak(u);      
    navigator.notification.vibrate(2000);
    document.getElementById("frm1").reset();
  }
