The use of difference speech origins for the listening material will bring different effect for students’ listening comprehension. This study identifies whether the students who are taught by synthetic speech have significant difference on their listening comprehension than those who are taught by natural non-native speaker. It used quasi experimental research design. The experimental group consisted of 34 students who treated by using synthetic speech audio material which produced by Text-To-Speech application. The control group consist of 32 students treated by non-native speaker. The instrument used in this research was test. The result of independent sample t-test from the post-test showed significant value of the data was 0.016. From the result above, it can be concluded that teaching listening using different speech origins has effect for students’ listening comprehension. It was proved by the result of the test. It is suggested that English teacher can use synthetic speech audio material which produced by Text-To-Speech application for teaching listening to make the teaching and learning process more enjoyable.
