Today, we've added four premium voices to our AI voice library — 'Jodi', 'Adam', 'Kate', and ‘Maria’ — all created in collaboration with professional voice actors. This means it's easier than ever for American-English publishers to find an AI voice that resonates with their listeners.
These lifelike AI voices are ideal for a variety of audio projects, from audio articles and newsletters to listenable landing pages. They're available exclusively to paying users under terms set by the voice actors themselves — just drop us an email if you'd like to request access through our text-to-speech platform.
How were these voices created?
We believe that AI voice actors should be fairly compensated and retain control over their voice IP. That's why every partnership starts with our Voice Cloning Contract. This open legal template allows voice actors to license their voice in a way that's fair, safe, and rewarding.
Next, the voice actors recorded scripts specially designed to get the best speech data. Our text-to-speech engineers then cleaned up the recordings and trained the voice models, putting them through various rounds of testing and improvement until they met our and the voice actors' exacting standards.
When we asked Kate Marcin, the voice actor behind 'Kate', about her experience creating the voice clone, she said: "I thought it was great, very easy. I narrate a lot of audiobooks and do a lot of other long-form narration so it was the same type of work for me."
Maria Pendolino, the voice actor behind 'Maria', said: "I love knowing that my voice work can help others experience content in a way that makes it more accessible and available to them. I'm excited to offer this as another part of my voice over business and performance."
