  • The SpeechSynthesis object will generate a SpeechSynthesisStream with the audio in wav format. You can save this to a file like you'd save any other stream:

                var synth = new Windows.Media.SpeechSynthesis.SpeechSynthesizer();
                SpeechSynthesisStream stream = await synth.SynthesizeTextToStreamAsync("Hello World");
                using (var reader = new DataReader(stream))
                    await reader.LoadAsync((uint)stream.Size);
                    IBuffer buffer = reader.ReadBuffer((uint)stream.Size);
                    await FileIO.WriteBufferAsync(outputFile, buffer);

    If you specifically want mp3 you can use the Windows.Media.Transcoding API to transcode it to mp3. See see Quickstart: transcoding and Transcoding media sample (the samples do video, but the same techniques work on audio if you choose an audio profile.
