CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework) - Untested

Untested, would recommend CEF3 

Electron - Untested

Electron is an open source library developed by GitHub for building cross-platform desktop applications with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Electron accomplishes this by combining Chromium and Node.js into a single runtime and apps can be packaged for Mac, Windows, and Linux. 

Raspberry Pi

Chromium browser on Raspberry Pi is not officially supported and remains untested.

Raspberry Pi running *nix (eg. Raspbian) install espeak, voices will be available in Chromium. Launch chromium with --enable-speech-dispatcher flag set will enable audio output when calling speak(), without requiring Google api keys.
