Custom Lingual Adaptation (Preview)

“Custom Neural Voices” is a part of Microsoft’s Cognitive Services suite of technologies.  It allows users to develop highly realistic, humanlike voices by using Microsoft's groundbreaking neural text-to-speech technology. A user will simply record audio samples and then upload training data. Once the voice is created, it can be used in applications for Text-to-Speech or Voice Assistant.


In addition, once the voice is created, it can be used to speak fluently in 13 other languages:

  1. German (Germany)
  2. English (Australia)
  3. English (Canada)
  4. English (Canada)
  5. Spanish (Spain)
  6. Spanish (Mexico)
  7. French (Canada)
  8. French (France)
  9. Italian (Italy)
  10. Japanese (Japan)
  11. Korean (Korea)
  12. Portuguese (Brazil)
  13. Chinese (Mandarin, Simplified)


This will provide developers the ability to give their application a voice and persona that can be applied to 13 different languages/dialects.  Global companies such as  BBC, Swisscom,  AT&T and Duolingo have built realistic voices that resonate with their brands.
