SSML Features for Ultra-Realistic Voices
After releasing our most realistic voices yet, we've received feedback from our users on what features they'd like to be introduced to these new voices. So, here's what we are working on next - • Ability to change narration speed One of the first of the requested features is the ability to change the narration speed of the ultra-realistic voices. • Ability to add natural pauses With this feature, you will be able to quickly add pauses in your content to add a natural flow to your audio. • Custom Pronunciations Yes, you will soon be able to customize pronunciations of words with the ultra-realistic voices. Tell us in the comments what you'd like us to work on next! :)
Support for SSML tags in the Editor
This functionality would include SSML tags support inside the text editor that would allow users to change voice tones, speed, etc. It would look something like this - <pitch=low> Here is some text that is spoken <volume=low> in a low volume </volume=low> and this is text at the normal volume. </pitch=low>.
Timecode to sync the audio with video
A feature that displays the start time and the end time of each paragraph inside the text editor. This feature is meant to help users perfectly time the voiceover audio with the video they might be creating.
Download .SRT file after creating audio
A new feature to download an .SRT file of the audio I created on the Play.ht platform.
Ordering & Filtering Feature
Ordering/sorting and filtering features in the Projects list, Files, and Pronunciation Library would be greatly appreciated. Currently, the projects/files appear in the order they've been created. The terms in the library can't be ordered alfabetically. Thanks!
More Kid Voices
There's only 1 male kid's voice. That makes it impossible to simulate a conversation between boys as happens frequently in audiobooks. Please add more in different accents and languages. More female kid voices would be appreciated too please. Thank you.
More podcast functionality
Currently it seems that the podcast hosting is done automatically. It only allows a general description. It would be nice to be able to add episode descriptions, show notes, links, etc. Perhaps there is a third party program that can handle this?
Download All Paragraphs to use filenames from these paragraphs
At the moment, when you "Download All Paragraphs", they are put in a single zip file with names beginning from the text of the first paragraph, followed by consecutive number 1, 2, 3 and .mp3 extension. It would be really useful, if the audio files started with the consecutive number, followed by the beginning text of each paragraph. USAGE SCENARIO: When making software tutorial video in Camtasia, it is very simple to shift paragraphs to create perfect timings. However, it is hard to identify paragraphs easily as their file names look the same. Please see attached screenshot.
