Using Siri text to speech voice

Siri’s TTS technology is built with high-quality human-sounding voices. A virtual assistant’s voice is often created using speech synthesis or speech generation.

Today, many AI text-to-speech generators incorporate advanced speech synthesis tools to create computer-generated voices that are realistic-sounding and human-like.

Typecast is an excellent AI speech generator that offers various options to choose from as Siri text-to-speech voice. 

  • Sophia – Having a similar tone to Siri’s, Sophia is a great replacement voice for Siri text-to-speech. Her voice is ideal for any guidance-related content. For example, assistance in finding directions to a destination and step-by-step instructions to completing a task.
  • Helena – Though a distant relative of the Adams family, Helena has the perfect voice of a virtual assistant. She is a great choice for animation and gaming content. 

Her intonations and voice pitch have similarities to Siri’s voice. You can also use her voice in spooky short stories starring Siri. For example, Siri is alive! Siri’s Nightmare, How Siri killed my friend.

  • Katie – Also a great alternative to Siri, Katie’s voice is an ideal fit for ad or promotion-related content. As a content creator, you often need to promote products/services of various brands. Katie’s voice has the right touch of virtual assistance that can help drive content to your audience.
