Robotic text-to-speech is growing outdated with advances in AI-powered text-to-speech technology. Learn all about the new capabilities of TTS from Speechify!
Robotic text-to-speech is the digital simulation of human speech and has a wide variety of applications, like call centers, voice-enabled virtual assistants, and voice overs. Text-to-speech programs can also be used to read news articles, produce games, and enhance video content. Below, we discuss the details of robotic speech and how human-like speech synthesis might meet the needs of your project.
What is a robot voice generator?
A robot voice generator utilizes AI and machine learning technology to create human-like speech. Voices generated by speech voice modulation mimic the inflections of human speech in real time without being too canny or robotic sounding. Many people use AI text to speech generators to record voice overs videos or audio books, or respond to customers without having to use their own voice.
How our TTS voices are made
Speechify’s TTS voices are created using high quality audio files recorded by a voice actor and compiled using AI voice technology that can create voice sounds customized to the input of the user. To create synthesized speech that sounds like a human, the audio files must go through an intense editing process, which includes perfecting the timbre, intonation, inflections, tone, and sound quality.
A text-to-speech Application Programming Interface (API) allows users to integrate TTS synthesis into other programs, giving users more functionality and accessibility with applications that do not have their own text-to-speech feature. Speechify can be utilized on any device with an internet connection, so you can get the TTS functionality you need when you need it.
Today’s text-to-speech technology allows users to create custom neural voices that have unique speaking styles that are not currently in use by any other program or application. Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) are an advanced form of artificial intelligence built on machine learning that allows TTS applications like Speechify to generate real-sounding text-to-speech. Neural voices are the most realistic TTS voices available for use on any text-to-speech application. Users can create a customized voice that is almost identical to their own, which can then be used for multiple different purposes.
Custom TTS voices
Speechify offers users the ability to create one-of-a-kind, customized HD TTS voices that read written text with engaging inflections and human-like language. Custom voices can be used for a number of different applications and can help personify a brand in a way that sets it apart from its competitors. Custom voices have been employed by large corporations like AT&T, Progressive, Duolingo, and more. To create a custom voice, you need at least 30 minutes out of spoken audio, which is about 300 sentences. You can use at most about 3 hours of audio data, or 2,000 sentences.
Unit-Selection Synthesis (USS) is the primary text-to-speech synthesis technique used on the market today. Synthesized speech is generated by concatenating bits of human speech that have been recorded and loaded into a database. Then, an intelligent text-to-speech program normalizes the text and designates phonetic transcription to every word. The content is then divided into sentences and phrases, which are synthesized to sound as human-like as possible.

Speechify offers state-of-the-art, natural-sounding custom voices that use artificial intelligence to mimic human voices to help drive maximum content engagement. Our speech recognition technology is among the best in the industry and provides sophisticated text to speech translation in more than 60 languages and 22 voices.

How do you get a robotic voice?
Many TTS applications offer robotic voice options that let users create speech that sounds similar to what you might imagine a robot would sound like. If you can’t find a suitable pre-recorded robotic voice for your project, you can use Speechify to create a custom voice that sounds like a robot. When creating your customized TTS voice, drop the pitch of your voice and speak in a more monotone or flat way with little to no emotion or inflections. Don’t be afraid to get creative and try out multiple different versions until you settle on a voice that fits your needs best.
How do I get a funny robotic voice?
To create a funny robotic voice in the Speechify app, you can use robotic presets that automatically transform your voice files to be more robotic sounding. You can also copy a recorded .WAV file and stretch, raise, and lower the pitch to layer files together to create a robotic voice.
Is there realistic text-to-speech?
Today’s text-to-speech programs are more realistic than ever before and offer human-sounding and custom voices that can read any text out loud in multiple languages. Speechify has dozens of languages and voices integrated into its platform and also has the capability of generating completely customized and realistic text-to-speech voices.
What is a voice generator?
A voice generator is software that takes printed content and converts it into spoken word by digitally creating or generating synthesized human speech. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology allows users to scan printed documents or images to convert to speech, versus manually inputting the text into the program.
What is text to speech?
Text-to-speech is an application that takes written content, either in document or image form, and reads it out loud to the applications user. There are many different TTS programs available on the market today, each with different benefits and drawbacks that must be carefully examined before selecting an application to use. There are many benefits to using TTS software, including, but not limited to, helping people with disabilities such as blindness and dyslexia read written text more easily.
How do I make a text-to-speech with my voice?
You can make text-to-speech with your own voice by using an application that allows you to create customized TTS voices. You can clone your voice to create text-to-speech that reads content allowed in a way that sounds like you. Make sure that you are using an application that uses advanced neural networking to create custom voices for the most natural-sounding voice options.
What is the difference between synthesized voices and text-to-speech?
Voice synthesis is the process of creating digital voices that are capable of human-like speech. Text-to-speech programs use voice synthesis to read text aloud to the user. The program deciphers written text and converts it into spoken word by comparing the text to acoustic that has been recorded and stored in the application and selecting the appropriate words, phrases, and inflections with which to read the text.
