Copy text and play to speech

I have created an app that has a series of stories/poems and are looking to develop it further by being able to play the stories . What I mean is each article will have a play button that would possibly copy the text of the article to a text page and then then play it to speech using the devices ‘voice’. I have watched a tutorial on the text to speech plugin where a user can enter text and play it, so I this is why I thought if I had a specific text page I could copy the text from a selected article to this page and have it played. I will be starting this development in November so I thought in preparation I would put this concept in the forum to see what people would suggest. Thanks in advance.
