Amazon Polly is a service that turns text into lifelike speech. Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of a neural version of Vitória, Polly’s Brazilian Portuguese female text to speech (TTS) 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 Brazilian Portuguese voice Vitória using standard technology in 2016, and as of today a neural version of Vitória is also available. The new voice offers a more natural sounding rhythm, intonation, and sound articulation. In addition to Vitória, Polly also offers a second Brazilian Portuguese neural voice, Camila.

To get started with Vitória, 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, Neural TTS pricing, regional availability, service limits, FAQs, and visit our pricing page.
