Phone Notify! Text-to-Speech Best Practices

Text-To-Speech (TTS) is a variation of speech synthesis that turns text into spoken words. CDYNE’s text-to-speech engine converts raw text to written-out words, and then assigns phonetic transcriptions to those words. The text is then read to the recipient using a computer generated voice. Text-to-speech can also be combined with recorded .wav files to create relevant call scripts according to your phone messaging web service needs.
