Text-to-speech, or speech synthesis is the production human speech using software. It is a difficult thing to do in multiple languages because each language has its own set of rules. For example, there are many words with the same spelling in English, there are over 50,000 characters in Chinese, and so on.
TTS was originally developed to help the visually impaired read online content. It is now a very common feature in websites and applications. There are several big TTS software providers, such as Google Cloud, IBM, and other big tech companies, and the TTS functionality can be incorporated into websites and applications using their simple APIs.
The issue is, those APIs are a bit pricey. You can expect to pay hundreds of dollars per month just to have the TTS feature in your application.
On the other hand, Infoset provides this feature completely for free. Previously, we were able to synthesize human speech in 3 languages; English, French and Turkish. We spent the last few weeks improving our text-to-speech engine and now we’re able to synthesize natural-sounding human speech in 13 languages.
You can use the Infoset text-to-speech feature to synthesize natural-sounding human speech and integrate into your cloud call center system in seconds. We will continue to improve our TTS engine in the upcoming days. Soon we will publish our ASR (automatic speech recognition) solution to automatically transcribe each and every phone call as well.
