Analyst Review

Text-to-speech is a technology that enables text to be converted into speech sounds imitative of the human voice. In addition, it is a natural language modeling process that requires changing units of text into units of speech for audio presentation. This is the opposite of speech to text, where a technology takes in spoken words and tries to accurately record them as text. Moreover, it allows users to see text and hear it read aloud simultaneously. There are many apps available, but typically as text appears on the screen, it’s spoken. Some software uses a computer-generated voice and others use a recorded human voice. Very often the user has a choice of gender and accent as well.

The global text-to-speech market is expected to register high growth due to increasing penetration of Internet-enabled handheld smart devices. Increasing globalization and global tourism and trade is another factor are expected to drive industry growth. Thus, increase in adoption of text-to-speech, owing to its security is one of the most significant factors driving the growth of the market. With surge in demand for text-to-speech, various companies have established alliances to increase their capabilities. For instance, in June 2022, Fluent.ai partnered with Knowles Partner to deliver fully offline, noise robust and multilingual/multi-accent voice control for washing machines and other home appliances.

In addition, with further growth in investment across the world and the rise in demand for text-to-speech, various companies have expanded their current product portfolio with increased diversification among customers. For instance, in June 2022, Mycroft AI launched latest text-to-speech (TTS) engine, Mimic 3. This open-source neural TTS software is designed to provide the most natural sounding voice to date It can run completely offline on low-end systems.

Moreover, with increase in competition, major market players have started acquisition companies to expand their market penetration and reach. For instance, in June 2022, Spotify acquired Sonantic which has developed text-to-speech technology capable of generating (in its words) “compelling, lifelike performances with fully expressive AI-generated voice.
