Unlike the canned voices you're likely to hear on customer service calls today, Voicery's AI-synthesized voices sound human enough to convey carefully designed emotions that can act as an extension of a company's brand.
As more of our interactions with companies shift away from the visual and toward the verbal–whether thanks to Echo and Google Home or automated customer service systems–the tone, quality, and cadence of a company's voice is becoming the new face of the brand.

Voicery's model works differently from the traditional model creating synthetic voices, as heard in many devices. It only needs a few hours of a voice actor's speech, on which it trains a deep neural network to imitate that person's voice. The entire process, from casting an actor, to having them read sets of phrases, to actually training the computer, takes about two weeks. Creating a single synthetic voice's neural net model takes four days. At the moment, Voicery has three production-ready synthesized voices, drawn from voice actors or from audiobooks that are all in the public domain.
For companies looking to ensure that their brand is consistent across every interface, the impact of such tech could be great. The believability–and charisma–of a voice is more important than you might expect when you want to build relationships with their users.

Because its synthetic voices are so hard to distinguish from the real thing, Voicery's tech could improve other forms of media beyond advertising–like automating audiobooks, making more media audio-accessible, and even making voice dubbing in films much easier.

"The problem with text-to-speech with media use is you can't listen to it for very long because it's repetitive and boring. With this new technology, it sounds much more realistic and it's much more enjoyable. It's creating a new market. It could change the way people consume media." Booby Ullman, CEO, Voicery
