Emmy Award-winning Respeecher is changing the speech synthesis game. Move over TTS and SSML, and enter Speech to Speech.
From voice preservation, to accessibility, to voiceovers to film studios, the uses for speech to speech are endless.
Rather than programming machines to read text out loud, like most speech synthesis systems (text-to-speech), Respeecher uses it deep learning to sonically reproduce voices at film studio levels of fidelity. With Respeecher, a voice actor (or anyone) can simply speak and have their voice transformed into synthesised speech in next to real time. It reproduces all of the character and delivery in the voice, so that the resulting synthesised speech is exactly like the original source. Whether you shout, whisper or sing, the speech to speech technology will replicate everything. It’s truly ground breaking and has to be hear to be believed.
And you can hear it in the intro, as I introduce the episode using four different Respeecher voices.
Respeecher CEO, Alex Serdiuk, joins us to share more.
