Founder and CEO
For the last 30 years, I have been a journalist, scriptwriter, film director, and producer of mobile apps. Voiceovers? I needed them all the time, sometimes in various languages. I worked with actors and studios, even when I needed to convert a short paragraph of text. It was an expensive and time-consuming process. So, Kukarella was born out of a desire to make it easier for myself and my team. And I am sure that it can help you too.
My goal with Kukarella is to make this application an easily usable text to speech and audio transcription platform for any type of user. Whether you are a blogger, writer, business, or someone who wants to make memes with text to voice. We are here for you!
How do I find the most realistic text to speech voices?
The highest-quality text to speech online software, predictably, turned out to be from giants like Google, Microsoft, IBM and Amazon. But these platforms aren’t designed for end users. Rather, they’re meant as a B2B solution.
To start converting text to speech, users need to create accounts with each platform, update lots of settings and even code. That’s why we created Kukarella, which gives users an easy access to the most realistic voices from the most popular providers.
What questions should you ask yourself in order to choose the right voice for your message?
Want to be heard by your audience and avoid unnecessary costs by remodeling messages? Then you need to regularly ask yourself these questions:
- Who is my audience? You’re going to talk differently to a forty-year-old mother of three than you will to a six-year-old boy.
- What information do I want to deliver to them?
- Where will they see or hear my message?
- What reaction do I expect from them?
A voice cannot be good or bad. It can only be SUITABLE or NOT SUITABLE - this is the main criterion. A beautiful, lush voice, but not appropriate in specific circumstances, will destroy the message. And another voice, perhaps even one that resonates unpleasantly, may be remembered and even bring incredible success to your company.
There is no magic to this. It’s just a puzzle. The main thing is to match theme and voice.
On Kukarella you can conduct a quick experiment that will take a few days and cost you a cup of coffee. And by doing that you can get a response from your audience, which will save a lot of time and prevent errors.
Will computer text to speech voices replace voice over actors?
Of course, if you create voice-over for a complex emotional text or dialogue, it is not yet possible to replace a professional actor. In this case, the actor not only reads the text, he creates a character, an image. So if you have a challenging dramatic task and a sufficient budget, then a professional actor can handle the task better than a computer voice.
However, today many businesses use synthesized voices to convert text to speech. The fear of using computer tts voices is fading into the background, giving way to such advantages as the ability to quickly and inexpensively get high-quality voice over.
Computer voices have become more realistic, and the choice among them is growing. If among the synthesized voices you come across robotic voices, such as the voice used by Stephen Hawking, then this is an exception.
Today you can choose not only the type of voice, but also the accent and intonation, and sometimes the temperament of the narrator. Computer voices are so natural and realistic that we often don’t notice them in YouTube or Tik Tok videos or when we hear announcements at airports and train stations.
Commercial use of text to speech voices
Standard terms of service Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and IBM give ownership of resulting sound recording copyrights for the recorded files to the user of the application, as long as the text is an original text created or otherwise legally used by the application user.
That means that if you hold the copyright to the text, you hold the copyright to the recordings as well. The crucial consideration governing that right is that you ‘Created’ the work, meaning that there is a modicum of creativity.
Kukarella allows commercial use of audio, created with any paid plan.
How to use accents when you convert text to speech?
Do you wonder how to pick the right accent for your message? Here are three recommendations to help you get started:
- Define your audience: In which country and in which city do they live? What language do they speak?
- Find out which accent is popular in everyday life, and which one is used for business communication (it can be one accent, or it can be two or more);
- Decide if you want your message to sound official or casual.
Ask yourself these simple questions and it is likely that the answers will give you a new perspective on your audience and help you find common ground more easily.
What is the major difference between AI voices and real ones?
Experiments show that we can distinguish an artificial voice if it speaks for more than one minute. The reason is that the voice behaves the same. One speed, timbre, tonality. An actor will not behave like that. He will change intonation, speed, pitch, and he will have pauses of different lengths. The effects are what makes voice acting realistic.
It’s hard to say who will be the first to create a truly realistic synthesized voice. But we can be sure of one thing: in another few years we will not be able to determine who is talking to us on the phone - a real person or a computer. And the realism of the voices will be primarily achieved through the organic use of voice effects.
How should I choose a text to speech software?
When choosing an online solution for converting text to speech, it is recommended that you pay attention to the number of languages and realistic voices offered by the service; the ability to add special effects; conversion cost; and the ability to download and/or share the converted audio files.
