Yep. Speech synthesis is a functionality (singular) that can be provided 
by different (types of) devices. A speech synthesis device would be 
something like a "speech synthesizer" (which could be plural), but I 
doubt that's a common term.

But when it comes to e.g. a section header, you can probably just use
"Speech synthesis" (if it e.g. describes the availability of the 
functionality rather than its implementation in specific devices).
