Text-to-voice technology turns text into humanlike audio files at a fraction of the cost of booking a voice artist, recording studio and sound engineer.

The Company-X text-to-voice editor utilises artificial intelligence (AI) based machine language for text-to-voice services.

A variety of male and female voices and languages are available.

The Company-X text-to-voice editor allows Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) tags to control emphasis, pitch, speed and tone.

The text-to-voice editor builds a pronunciation library of acronyms and specialist terminology.

With this tool, built by Company-X, the world leader in milking equipment and dairy solutions DeLaval International has transformed the manual voice translation process internationally into a fully automated digital process.

DeLaval serves millions of dairy farmers in 100 international markets and uses e-learning courses to ensure its staff, dealers and farmers are well educated in the principles of sustainable food production and DeLaval products.

The Company-X text-to-voice editor removed the need for DeLaval to book voiceover artists, directors, sound technicians and recording studios for six languages. Instead of a half-day block of recording costing tens of thousands of dollars per language, the audio files were produced in seconds at 10 per cent of the cost.

DeLaval’s production staff can edit and resynthesize the result at any time using SSML tags. If the material needs to be updated the user can replace the entire text at a touch of a button.

Apart from the automated voice file generation, the Company-X text-to-voice editor created a translation platform significantly reducing the time to deliver translated content to the global market.

The Company-X text-to-voice tool delivers consistent results across all regions.
