You will need to either use an MP3 board, amp & speaker or use a bluetooth (or other wireless) speaker.
There are no other ways of doing this.

So once you have this board and a small amp you will
have the following connections:

Soundboard/Amp -> EZ-B (RX/GND/3.3V)
Amp -> Speaker

It uses serial command lines:

SendSerial(D1, 9600, 0x01) -> Plays Track #1
SendSerial(D1, 9600, 0x02) -> Plays Track #2
SendSerial(D1, 9600, 0x03) -> Plays Track #3
and so on.

Search the forum, they have been discussed here.

Amp from E-Bay that I use.
