Amazon Polly creates life like speech out of text, enabling talking applications which can create totally new speech-enabled products. Advanced deep learning technology in Polly's Text-to-Speech (TTS) service creates life-like human voices in a wide array of languages. Thus voice-enabled applications in many different countries are possible using Amazon Polly.
In addition, Amazon Polly offers a Neural Text-to-Speech (NTTS) which creates more of a newscaster style voice for certain cases where a narration speaking style is more appropriate.
Finally, Amazon Polly Brand Voice can create a custom voice for your organization. This is a custom engagement where you will work with the Amazon Polly team to build an NTTS voice for the exclusive use of your organization.
