Why is Play.ht the best Text to Speech software
Play.ht uses advanced machine learning models to create voices that are far better and natural sounding from most other online tools. Below are some of the features that make Play.ht the best TTS tool online.
Ultra realistic voices Powered by AI
Traditional Text to Speech technology used a concatenative approach where sounds of words would be pre-recorded and stitched together to create the audio. The result would be robotic and not suitable for today’s applications. Play.ht uses a modern technique to generate high-quality human-like voices that involves training machine learning models with a real human voice actor. The process teaches the machine to learn how to speak. The voice also understands the context of the text and adjusts its intonation accordingly. The whole things works as magic!
Save time with instant turn arounds
Recording a voiceover or hiring a voice actor to record one is time consuming. That’s because a real human is involved who has to speak out each word, record it and finally edit the speech to make it sound perfect. This whole process takes way too much time. With Play.ht, creating a voiceover is almost instant. It literally takes a couple of minutes depending on the amount of text you convert. The best part? You get consistent quality each time you synthesize speech and you can update the content anytime.
Play.ht offers one of the most affordable online speech generation services, with a very high level of quality that is unmatched for its price range. For as low as $39/month for the Pro Plan, you will have access to ample text to speech credits, unlimited revisions, unlimited downloads and full commercial rights. This is perfect for professionals who constantly need to create voiceovers for videos, presentations, podcasts or narrating articles and blog posts. It’s an incredibly affordable solution compared to hiring a professional voiceover artist! You can visit Play.ht’s pricing page to select a plan that best suits your needs.
Localize speech in more than 60+ languages
Often times it is important to create your content in multiple languages so reach a wider audience. Play.ht provides more than 60 languages and dialects to help you create multi-lingual audio. Translate your audio in different languages.
Simple yet powerful Text to Speech editor
Using revolutionary text to speech AI, Play.ht’s editor is designed for converting long-form and short-form content to audio. Unlike other tools, Play.ht’s editor offers a simple UI where you can type, paste or import text just like you would using any text editor. If you would like to listen to a paragraph just click the speaker icon next to it. On top of the editor, you will find all the necessary controls like changing a voice, voice style, audio format, listen to the full text, etc. Once you are done editing the text simply click the Convert to Speech button to generate the audio file.
Use for personal & commercial purpose
The audio files you create on Play.ht are yours and yours alone. You can use Play.ht for creating voiceovers for your personal projects including school, university, etc. or for commercial projects like voiceovers for YouTube vidoes, corporate training, eLearning, etc. If you purchase a plan that grants you commercial rights you reserve the right to use the audio in your commercial applications including podcasts, audiobooks, etc. You will hold the rights even after you cancel the subscription.
Generate speech using our API
Are you building an application that requires voice interactions? You can use Play.ht’s Text to Speech API to integrate all the voices in your applications. The benefit of using Play.ht’s API is that you will have access to all the voices using a single API and new voices that are added on Play.ht will instantly be avaiable to you. Play.ht stores your audio files and uses a powerful CDN to stream the audio in realtime.
