Google Text-to-speech now supports Hindi and Indonesian.

Google Text-to-speech has been updated today with support for Hindi and Indonesian which will bring voice capability to millions of Android devices in India, Indonesia and beyond. If you don't know what Text-to-speech does, it simply reads text on your screen aloud. For example, it can be used with Google Play books to read aloud your favorite books or with Google Translation with the obvious advantage of also hearing the pronunciation of the translated word and there are even more usage on your device given the vast app trove that is Google Play. 

Besides support for Hindi and Indonesian, Google Text-to-speech also received some quality improvement. As per the change log, "our standard quality voices now surpass the quality of the high quality voices from our previous release."

This update brings Text-to-speech to version 3.5.6 and can be downloaded in Google Play store for free, of course.
