Technology giant Google has announced that it is upgrading its text-to-speech (TTS) voice engine by Google providing clearer and more natural voices.
The company said the 421 voices in 67 languages have been upgraded with a new voice model and a synthesizer.
“If you are already using TTS and the Speech Services by Google engine, there is nothing to do: everything will happen behind the scenes because your users will have automatically downloaded the latest update. We have seen a significant increase in quality side by side with this change, especially in terms of clarity and naturalness,” the platform said on its developer page.
“With this upgrade, we will also change the default voice to en-US for a voice built using newer speaker data, which along with our new stack results in a drastic improvement. If your users don’t have a system voice selected and you’re relying on the system defaults, they’ll hear a slightly different speaker,” he added.
This update will be rolling out to all 64-bit Android devices via the Google Play Store over the next few weeks as part of the Speech Services by Google apk.
