Uncanny Quality
Our AI model is built to grasp the logic and emotions behind words. And rather than generate sentences one-by-one, it’s always mindful of how each utterance ties to preceding and succeeding text. This zoomed-out perspective allows it to intonate longer fragments convincingly and with purpose. And finally you can do this with any voice you want.
Speech Synthesis
Our next-level text-to-speech (TTS) model lets you convert any writing into professional audio, fast. Powered by our proprietary deep learning model, the tool lets you voice anything from a single sentence to a whole book in impeccable quality, at a fraction of the time and cost traditionally involved in recording.

I know who the target markets for this are and I understand what the point is, but dear god, the potential for abuse here is staggering. Unlike a lot of synthesized voices, these ones, or at least the one I tried entering text into on the website, really do sound pretty good. And since they aren’t trying to mimic anyone specific, it’s going to be a lot harder to find the typical tells that something is up, because maybe that’s just how this fella talks.

That the company at least acknowledges ethics and taking action against misuse is nice I suppose, but moderating in real time at scale when the scale is the entire damn world is pretty much impossible. By the time you catch wind of the professional sounding fake news report and sort out that it’s not meant as satire, it’s already too late.
