In August of this year, WellSaid updated the Studio Voice Model with the most lifelike version of our AI Voice Avatars yet. This update helped render your voiceover content with fewer adjustments. Now, the Voice Model can “read” your text in context and get more words right on the first try. We also added the Respelling tool.
How It Works
Our Customer Success Managers, Courtney and Marta, held a creative session to explore Respelling. Watch the replay recording to learn more!
Learn More About Respelling
With the Respelling tool, you can now specify how you’d like difficult or regional words pronounced. For example, words like “tomato,” “aunt,” and “neither” are pronounced differently depending on your geographic background.
Additionally, you may want to give the Voice Model cues about which syllable you want emphasized. With Respelling, you have the ability to coach your Avatar on exactly how to say a word.
In the past, you could try a complex game of phonetic spelling to try to “trick” the Voice Avatars into pronouncing something a specific way. Respelling provides a predictable, standard system for getting your voiceover how you want it.
The latest WellSaid Studio Voice Model update provided major updates to the quality of AI text to speech.
Here are a few more sources to learn more about the Voice Model update and Respelling.
