Amazon Polly is a service that turns text into lifelike speech, allowing you to create applications that talk and build entirely new categories of speech-enabled products. Starting today, you can apply to participate in a developer preview that allows you to use eight English (U.S.) Amazon Polly voices to narrate your Alexa skills.
If your skill uses only a single voice today, changing the voice or adding different voices in the right places may allow you to provide an even more engaging experience. Developers in the preview can select a different voice for any utterance by constructing output speech using the Structured Speech Markup Language (SSML) tags that are available through Alexa skills, and specifying an Amazon Polly voice using the “voice name” tag.
Apply today to join the preview and use Amazon Polly to voice your Alexa skills.
