TTS technology: Then and now

Have you ever been lulled to sleep by a meditation audiobook or video, unaware that the soothing voice may have been powered by AI? Imagine someone simply inputting the text and choosing a suitable voice, and voilà, instant meditation content.

Though you might expect AI voices to sound perfectly human, traditional models often fall short due to limitations that remain in text-to-speech technology.

Researchers may report their models achieving human-like performance in controlled settings, but real-world application reveals a lack of nuance that can impede the technology’s ability to truly connect with diverse audiences.

Typecast addresses these limitations through a meticulously designed model, the Speech Synthesis Foundation Model (SSFM).

Trained on a substantial proprietary speech dataset, SSFM overcomes the shortcomings identified in previous generations of AI voices. The following sections explore SSFM’s capabilities and exciting future developments.

Natural, humanlike text-to-speech

With over 100 AI voices representing diverse ages and genders, Typecast empowers you to find the perfect fit for your content creation needs. However, the true essence of a compelling voice lies in its naturalness. Many creators hesitate to use text-to-speech tools due to concerns about unnatural-sounding voices.

Typecast addresses this challenge with the introduction of our new voice model, SSFM. This innovative model goes beyond simply reading text. It analyzes the context of your sentences to understand the intended mood and even infuses them with nuances of pitch and energy.

Simply input your script, and SSFM takes care of the rest. Say goodbye to time-consuming post-production edits – that’s where AI excels!

Text-to-speech with emotion

The magic of human speech? Emotion. Something mere words struggle to convey. But Typecast’s SSFM, a revolutionary AI voice model, injects your content with a spectrum of emotions.

Unlike traditional text-to-speech, SSFM transcends simple reading. It leverages a vast library of emotional speech samples to capture the subtle nuances of human feeling.

Infuse your content with emotion! Simply provide SSFM with specific emotion cues through a prompt, or reference existing emotional speech samples. SSFM will then generate the corresponding audio.
