What is Text-To-Speech (TTS)?

What is Text-To-Speech (TTS)?

Text to Speech (TTS) is a type of assistive technology used to read out text that users input, with a sound that closely resembles human speech.It is often abbreviated as TTS.

How can we use synthetic voices in our daily life?

Botnoi Group must say that this technology has been around for a long time and has become more popular in our daily life. Many people might not notice or realize that this is Text to speech technology. If we give examples of its everyday use, many people will likely understand and immediately get the picture

  • Google Maps

Voice navigation technology, like Google's GPS. If you press the speaker icon while opening the navigation, there's a voice that might say, 'In 200 meters, turn left,' or 'Head east.' This technology is called text-to-speech because if Google had to record individual voices for every journey around the world, it would not be easy.

  • Siri

A more obvious example is Siri, a virtual assistant developed by Apple. Siri uses this system to convert textual responses for iOS users into audio."

  • Google translate

In addition to Google Maps, there's a popular “translate” tool, and we suppose that many people have used it. So, which part of Google Translate uses speech to text technology? The answer is the part that listens to the text we want to translate or listens to the translated text. Besides helping us understand how it's pronounced, it's also an important assistant when traveling!

How do we convert Text-To-Speech?

Text to speech (TTS) technology receives text input from users, then analyzes how the given sentence should be read, and creates a synthetic speech to read that sentence.Currently, TTS technology is widely used and can be applied in various ways, such as for pronounce translation in language translation programs, reading news or books, creating instructional materials , and for developing audio systems to assist the visually impaired, etc.

How do we convert Text-To-Speech-en-image

1. Analyze the Text

The system analyzes the input text into basic components, breaking our sentences into smaller parts, like words and phrases, making it easier to process them in the next step of AI voice synthesis.

2. Process the Text

After the analysis, the next step in the processing. The system takes the segmented text and converts it into small sound units called "phonemes," which are the smallest units of sound in spoken language.

3.The Voice Synthesis Step

    Phonemes are then used to create speech from text using Text to Speech technology. fine-tuning the voice to make it as natural and human-like as possible (natural-sounding voices), including emphasis, intonation, and timing, like pauses.

4.Output in AI voice format

Finally, this step is where the person or persons who entered the text can hear the sound of the text (Sound of Text) that we have processed, output in the voice we selected.
