IPA Text-to-Speech

Hi. I was wondering if there is such a thing as an IPA text-to-speech
program, or something similar. What I mean is, a program that when you
speak, it transcribes what you said using IPA symbols, and if you write
words in the IPA it will speak them to you. I think this type of thing
would be useful in a number of ways, mainly for linguists, but for other
people too. For example, if you wanted you to know you were pronouncing a
word correctly in another language, then you would be able to check if you
said it correctly, because you could see exactly what you said and where
you went wrong, and it would work for every language. (The whole intention
of the IPA, lol). So I was wondering if such a program exists, or if not,
is it possible to make one?
