Educators know that adding audio to content helps meet accessibility requirements, drives student engagement, enhances productivity and improves learning outcomes. 
However, institutions and organizations can go one step further, supporting specific needs and increasing their institution’s brand awareness by making that voice ‘their own’.

“We wanted to provide a more life-like and expressive “teacher voice” for our K12 platform. ReadSpeaker’s VoiceLab accompanied us every step of the way, first developing samples using an expressive voice to show us the potential. 
Then using an inhouse StrongMind voice actor, ReadSpeaker and StrongMind worked together to create our friendly and lifelike voice “Archie”. 

Their experience was invaluable, and we couldn’t be happier.”

Why not use your own unique voice to build your institution’s brand recognition, while creating an inclusive and engaging experience?

How Will We Create Your Voice?

The ReadSpeaker Voicelab uses the latest AI technology to create lifelike, expressive voices. 
Our highly experienced team will work with you to develop and personalize your unique voice. We can even digitally transform the voice of a particularly lauded professor, accomplished alumni, famous personality or your CEO into TTS technology that you can use in perpetuity, on any platform. Our speech scientists work with you to source, record and further customize these voices. 

You will own this voice and use it to communicate in your own words, for any content, anywhere you choose.

If we already have our own voice talent, how does the process change? 

ReadSpeaker won't do “voice talent scouting”, but instead jump straight to a technical test recording where we set up a one hour online appointment with the voice talent and the VoiceLab team. VoiceLabs will do a real recording according to our requirements, in order to evaluate audio quality and cooperation, as well as how well the voice is suited for TTS. Based on that we can give a recommendation to move on with the suggested voice (normal case), or try to find another voice (rarely).

Can ReadSpeaker help us identify our voice persona, before even starting the voice talent scouting process?

Yes. The VoiceLab team can help you identify your voice persona by having a discussion with you, reviewing your marketing material and social media presence, and suggesting suitable characteristics and voice talents based on our extensive experience in voice talent scouting.

Voice Talent

Can ReadSpeaker create a voice that speaks several languages?

Yes. To create a multilingual voice with the best possible quality, we would try to select a voice talent that has mastered as many as possible of the requested languages.

In what languages can ReadSpeaker offer custom voices?

Arabic, Bulgarian, Cantonese, Catalan, Chinese (Mandarin), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, Flemish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian , Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Taiwanese, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese, Welsh

If your language is not listed, please reach out to us.

Can our custom voice be emotional/expressive/conversational?

Yes. If you require a specific speaking style for your project, we’ll accommodate that and direct in the requested style. It is also possible to record several speaking styles to be used in one TTS voice. Some examples of voices we have already created with more expressive speaking styles are Roy (newscaster), Lizzy (cartoon, sad, angry), Adam (conversational) and AWARE (evil game character) 

How much does a custom voice cost?

The pricing is dependent on a number of factors, such as type of service (lite, standard, extra), whether extra services are required, and whether you already have a voice talent you'd want to use. To get the best pricing estimate for your project, please contact us directly.
