For text to speech, if you have Windows, you can try my demo program:
% Program to do text to speech.
% Get user's sentence
userPrompt = 'What do you want the computer to say?';
titleBar = 'Text to Speech';
defaultString = 'Hello World! MATLAB is an awesome program!';
caUserInput = inputdlg(userPrompt, titleBar, 1, {defaultString});
if isempty(caUserInput)
return;
end; % Bail out if they clicked Cancel.
caUserInput = char(caUserInput); % Convert from cell to string.
NET.addAssembly('System.Speech');
obj = System.Speech.Synthesis.SpeechSynthesizer;
obj.Volume = 100;
Speak(obj, caUserInput);
To get text out of a text file, you can use fileread().

Did you see this line:
caUserInput = char(caUserInput); % Convert from cell to string.
? That converts the variable from a cell array into a string.

Use a microphone and your audio recorder of your OS to record the sound your computer makes to your hard drive or SSD. Or use an app like Audacity: https://www.audacityteam.org/ (freeware, open source).
