Toronto, February 22, 2022 – VideoLocalize Inc., a multimedia localization services provider, announced today that it has launched AiVoices, a new Text to Speech (TTS) tool offering over 100 voice skins in over 40 languages. The tool is simple and easy to use, where the user can instantly hear a synthetic voice saying the script entered by the user in the language selected. Downloading the audio files is available after registering for a free account.
“We are offering this tool for anyone to use because we want people to hear for themselves how natural these TTS voices have become and try them out for their own projects,” says George Zhao, CEO of VideoLocalize.
TTS technology has come a long way since the days of stiff, robotic voices. In recent years, these voices have become much more natural sounding, due to the use of deep learning in artificial intelligence (AI). Many of the latest AI voices are almost indistinguishable from humans, and some even incorporate natural human inflections to make them sound more lifelike.
George adds, “With their lifelike sound and adjustable inflections, AI voices are perfectly suited for many types of localization uses. Since they offer quicker turnaround times and lower costs, this is an important advantage we hope to bring to our clients.”
Using AI voices can reduce the cost and time that traditional studio recordings require. Although it cannot replace human voiceovers entirely, TTS voices are becoming a popular option for voice projects which require minimizing costs and faster time to production. The convenience and flexibility in using TTS voices offer another level of service to the localization industry. Click here to read about AiVoices.
