One of the most common technologies that allow people to interact with a computer through speech is “text-to-speech”. Text-to-speech software converts data from a digital text file into readable audio using a human voice. These programs can be used to read entire books, translate legal documents, create customized audio required for social media marketing campaigns or tell your fortune. The more natural and fluent the program is in its speech pattern, the better it sounds when it speaks! In fact, new companies are even investing in vocal synthesis to make their fake voices sound more realistic.
