You hear voice acting everywhere nowadays with fully voiced video games, animation, and even terminals that speak to you in a bank or airport. Vocal dialogue is ubiquitous even if we can’t speak back to the other end, and as voice over technology has evolved, so has the way these voices are generated and recorded. Back in the day, voiced content used to be low quality and relied on resource and cost-intensive means to produce, and if any edits needed to be made, then it would be even more of a hurdle to overcome.
As technology has evolved, not only have voice-overs taken much farther strides in quality, they have become cheaper to produce, edit, and deliver as well. With advancements in the text to voice programs, these services have evolved and changed the way voiced dialogue is made. Certain voice overs can now be entirely computer-generated through the use of text to voice programs and software.
You might not be aware that some human-sounding voices you hear every day are entirely generated via digital means, these include some characters in a video game or some messages you’ve heard on your phone.
Where Content Can Find a New Voice?
This can be extended to voice-over studios and independent content creators by encouraging them to simplify the entire voice recording process and let them create as many voiced characters as they want, either to fill a video game world or provide an animated character with a voice. Another advantage is that they can make fast edits and changes without having to bring back actors for another round. If a smaller project does not have the means to completely voice over the finished work, this technology is often available to fill the holes, and available via software services like Notevibes.com that provide different voices, tones, and languages to text.
For text in video games, a game developer is able to create hours of spoken conversation with realistic sounding characters in a much more effective manner. Though these created voices are not the complete replacement for humans, they can be an effective tool in filling holes, populating dense areas, and reducing the resources required to make improvements on the audio side.
Content creators like production studios are able to utilize this tech in order to add background dialogue to a filmed scene, or in the case of an animated feature, they are to create entire characters from the moment their dialogue is written. In addition to this, broadcasters like radio and television stations frequently use this technology to send out automated alerts and messages that can be helpful in informing audiences about important developments.
An innovation like this can be applied to various production styles and types to deliver content at a faster rate, without compromising on quality or utilizing too many resources.
By utilizing text to voice programs can mean that content creators will be able to look forward to building and fleshing out their worlds and projects while finding more ways to connect with audiences new and old.
