Amazon Polly is a service that turns text into lifelike speech. Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of two voices: a Neural version of Mia, Polly’s Mexican Spanish female text to speech (TTS) voice and Arlet, a new Catalan Neural voice.

TTS voices simplify the way you can create, implement, update and maintain your speech-enabled applications and products. You can use Amazon Polly to enhance the user experience and improve the accessibility of your text content with the power of voice. Common use cases include interactive voice response (IVR) systems, audiobooks, newsreaders, eLearning content, and virtual assistants.

Amazon Polly launched the Mexican Spanish TTS voice Mia using Standard technology in 2018, and as of today a Neural version of Mia is also available. With this launch, Amazon Polly now supports Standard and Neural voices in three different versions of Spanish: US, Castilian and Mexican. Catalan is a new language in Amazon Polly's portfolio and is available as a Neural voice. Arlet enables customers to create delightful TTS experiences for Catalan speakers around the world.

To get started with Mia and Arlet, log in to the Amazon Polly console and review the documentation. For more details, review our full list of Amazon Polly text-to-speech voices , regional availability, service limits, FAQs, and visit our pricing page.
