This video was made after Five9 and WellSaid Labs were featured in Geekwire, discussing the launch of this new custom voice.
More About the Collaboration
The following context is from the Geekwire story about this project, which launched in 2022:
California-based Five9 says it will incorporate WellSaid’s voice synthesis technology into its Virtual Voiceover menu of synthetic voices suitable for self-service contact centers. The new capabilities will be provided to users of the Five9 Inference Studio 7 platform at no additional cost, with wide availability planned in early 2022.
How Five9 Will Use the Custom Voice
Five9 used WellSaid’s technology to create a customized voice avatar with the aid of University of Manchester linguistics expert Alex Baratta and voice coach Liam French Robinson. Baratta and Robinson enlisted professional voice actor Vaughn Johseph to serve as the model for Five9’s in-house phone agent.
The customized agent will be available to Studio users along with the standard WellSaid offerings. These avatars can be use for anything from reassuring new employees who are going through training, or giving a playful boost to a new marketing project.
