Why choose BLEND for your AI voice project?

AI Voice Development Going Back 15+ Years

Starting with the studio recordings of the pre-Apple Siri project in 2005, and evolving to fully-managed, in-house voice synthesis, AI Voice is more than a passing fad to BLEND. Having managed every production and development workflow over years of evolving text-to-speech and voice AI projects, we stand by our experience and reputation as one of the pioneering players of yesterday's, today's, and tomorrow's voice-first applications.

Dozens of Languages Synthesized

English is great, and we've developed many unique, English-language AI voices for brands and software. But it's just the starting point for an integrated, multimarket brand experience. BLEND has been involved with the AI voice development of female and male personas in two dozen international languages. From technology to translation to QA, our capabilities don't stop at your domestic borders.

Talent + Studio Expertise + Technology

It takes a unique combination of human talent, process excellence, and cutting-edge tech to launch a natural-sounding AI voice. Starting with our contracted roster of 1,000+ global voice actors and extending to our experienced engineering team to record and integrate thousands and thousands of high-fidelity audio files into a near-seamless playback, no other provider covers the bases like BLEND.

After the session, our engineers edit the training data and QA it against the original scripts. After naming and organizing all the training data, we send it over for synthesis.

AI Voice Services FAQ

Are we able to use the current voice of our brand to create a synthetic voice?

Yes! We can work with your talent and connect with them remotely to produce the content needed to keep your voice branding consistent in the marketplace.

I don’t want to produce a new AI voice. Can I choose from a prerecorded library of synthetic options?

You’re in the right place. We can give you access to a large selection of synthetic voices in many different languages.

How much recorded audio is needed to create the training data for your AI voice service?

It depends! If you have a database of cleanly-recorded material from previous projects, you might not have to record anything. If you’re starting from scratch, it could take from a few to 40 hours or more, depending on the scope of the project.

What are the current use cases for AI voice?

We receive inquiries for synthetic media in the areas of IVR, virtual assistants, eLearning, corporate video narration, podcasting, and even media catalog localization. As the technologies used in AI voice creation continue to improve, you’ll begin to see it used across many new industries.
