Better AI for text to voice in Storyline 360

Our company does medical training products, hence medical terminology. The AI that comes with 360 struggles with these and other phrases to the point that I have to trick it with weird spellings to get it right.

I have found another AI text to speech service online called Speechelo that really breezes through the pronunciations. I haven't had to spend any time dealing with this. It's a simple matter of pasting the text you want into the app, converting it to speech then downloading and importing into the slide through insert/audio.

I bring this to your attention because I believe Articulate is one of the Big Players in the online learning creation industry. As an enhancement request, please up your AI quality so I don't have to go to outside sources to get good pronunciation and phrasing.

 

Thanks

Hi George, 

Thanks for taking the time to reach out about what you'd like to see with Text-to-Speech! We currently have an active request for this feature, and I'm happy to add your plus one to the list and share your insight with our team.

We'll be sure to jump back in here to let you know as we expand that feature set or make any changes, as your voice truly helps us prioritize and determine the next steps.

My team and I would also love to see improvements in the TTS capabilities. TTS is such a great feature! However, one of the ongoing issues we've experienced is the difficulty in affecting pronunciation, or adding emphasis such as anger where appropriate. Any updates that would make the narrators sound more human would be helpful.

Articulate has done such a good job implementing TTS so far, I hope you continue development on this feature.

Thanks!
