Crafting TTS Voices Since 1999

We’ve been crafting TTS voices since 1999. In 2020, we built on that experience to open the ReadSpeaker VoiceLab, a team of linguists and computer scientists dedicated to building bespoke TTS voice solutions for brands and creators in every field. Let us translate your brand identity into an original TTS voice you can deploy across all your voice channels.

How We Build Your Custom TTS Voice

  • Assessment

    The Architecture.

    – Where do you need to deploy your voice—on servers, embedded in devices, on the cloud, or all three? We make sure you have the right technology to  meet your goals  even if those goals are variable .

    The Brand.

    – ReadSpeaker identifies your brand characteristics and establishes voice specifications to match them. If your brand is rugged and outdoorsy, for instance, you might want a gravelly, low-pitched voice expression.

    The Variations.

    – We’ll identify the desired speaking styles of your TTS voice, giving it the speech patterns of a newscaster, a video game character, a helpful assistant, or anything else.

  • Construction


    – ReadSpeaker will find a voice actor who embodies your brand traits and record him or her reading a training script. Less than three hours of speech is enough to give our TTS model the full range of a language. 


    – Using the audio recordings and their associated transcriptions, we create the deployable voice by training the model to recognize which letters correspond to which sounds. 


    – Industry jargon? No problem. We’ll tweak TTS engines to pronounce brand names, slogans, and technical terms correctly every time.

  • Deployment


    – Test and tweak your custom TTS voice for as long as you need. When you’re completely satisfied, we’ll proceed with roll-out. 


    – The ReadSpeaker VoiceLab works with your IT departments to install solutions for every channel. 


    – We’re always available to make adjustments and troubleshoot technical challenges, ensuring you obtain full value from your branded TTS voice.
