Amazon Polly Gets New Voices

Alright guys, Mark Phillips with SimpliSpoken. This is the SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash briefing back again talking about a recent announcement by Amazon. And that’s this Amazon Polly launch of newscaster voice and neural text to speech. So if you think about newscaster, it just imitates news person style. So if you want to as a news media content producer or another content kind of creator, you can deliver audio that sounds like breaking news sounds like news reporting. So it’s an interesting, Polly capability. And so it’s cool because they use a lot of machine learning with Polly to create technology that mimics voices and they’ve got a release called neural text to speech in there. And so basically, the way you can think about neural text to speech is they, they use machine learning to quickly learn the differences in a speaking style for a speaker and then imitate that style. And so they’ve got 10 or 11 voices for English I think three Yeah, three of those are United Kingdom English and eight of them are US English. That is a pretty cool capability. So you got a couple of newscaster options you’ve got some female voices, some male voices. And that is an interesting interesting development and kind of a nice proof point for generation so kudos to the Amazon Alexa team for bringing that out that’s an interesting capability and Polly so that’s it for SimpliSpoken on Voice Daily Flash briefing we’ll be back again tomorrow guys thanks
