New Neural Text to Speech Voices from Amazon Polly
Storyline 360 uses standard voices from Amazon Polly for it's text to speech functionality. I imagine they use their API for this. This has been great for prototyping sides and getting the timing right. Occasionally it can be good for scenarios if you can't afford to hire other voices. Recently, Amazon has developed a new version of their voices called Neural Voices that use better algorithms for synthesizing voices. I would love to see Articulate let us access these new voices directly from Storyline. You can use them by accessing Amazon Polly if you have an Amazon account and downloading the audio and importing it manually into your timeline. I have created a quick demo to let you hear the difference.
