    If you’re looking for the best text to speech platform available, then you might want to consider Speechify as an option. Speechify is one of the most popular platforms available.

    Speechify vs. Google WaveNet

    When you think of text to speech you probably think of something like Siri, but with new platforms like Speechify, Google Wavenet, or Natural Reader, Amazon Polly, and Voice Dream. that’s not what you should be thinking of. Text to speech can sound natural, so natural that some aren’t sure if they’re listening to a reader or someone doing a voice-over.

    What is Google WaveNet?

    Google Cloud is Google’s text to speech platform. WaveNet is a program developed by a company called Deepmind. It is an open-source speech synthesis program. Deep mind works with many artificial intelligence programs and is know in this space. Google WaveNet model raw audio for a more natural-sounding voice. A human-sounding voice that puts more emphasis on syllables and words. With the Google Cloud text to speech program, you can choose from over 220 voices and between 40 languages. You can even control the speech that you hear back. Google Cloud is compatible with Chrome and can read aloud from your web browser.

    It’s powered by machine learning technology if you already use google’s interface in some way, then you can quickly learn how to use Google Cloud text to speech. It’s also an affordable option. You’re allowed a certain amount of characters free each month; if and when you exceed those characters there is a monthly fee. The monthly subscription price depends on how characters after your free ones run out on the platform in a month. 

    How do Speechify and Google WaveNet work differently?

    If you’re looking for the best text to speech platform available, then you might want to consider Speechify as an option. Speechify is one of the most popular platforms available. It’s known for its high-quality, natural-sounding AI voices. You can choose from over thirty voices and 60 different languages. Furthermore, you can choose a custom voice and reading speed, pitch, tone, and so much more. With so much customizability, it makes a better listening experience. Speechify is compatible with Windows and iOS, so that you can use it almost anywhere. 

    Speechify has a free version and a premium version, $11.58/month billed annually. With the free version, you get a free trial of premium so that you have a chance to try out all the premium benefits before you commit to a subscription. With premium, the word per minute capacity triples, and you get access to more natural-sounding voices. You also get the bonus of note-taking tools.

    Which one is better for you and your business needs?

    Which platform would work best for your business really depends on the type of business you have. If your business works with people who have trouble reading for some reason, a disability, or disease, then Speechify is the way to go. You’ll see Speechify recommended online a lot for eLearning programs. That’s because compared to a lot of other programs, it’s the best value for your money, it’s easy to use, and it offers more helpful features than any other platform.

    If you use TTS readers or speech apps often but not on a day-to-day basis, maybe not all clients or employees even use it, or if most of your business runs on google platforms or uses Google Suite, then you might want to take a closer look at Google WaveNet. Because so many people are already using google in some way, it makes the platform very user-friendly and easy to pick up quickly.

    Which one should you choose for your business communication needs?

    Again this depends mainly on the type of communication your does on a day-to-day basis and who your customers are. Are you a business that works with people who are teachers, students, people with dyslexia, or even people who are generally on the move and prefer to be read aloud to? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then Speechify is the winner. If you are looking for something to accommodate a few or you really want something that can work well with other Google systems and programs, then Google Cloud may be the way to go. Take a look at your needs and see what program is right for you.
