Amazon Polly is a service that turns text into lifelike speech. Today, we are excited to announce the general availability of all Neural Text-to-Speech (NTTS) voices in the Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region.

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. Polly's Text-to-Speech (TTS) service uses advanced deep learning technologies to synthesize natural sounding human speech.

Amazon Polly voices can be applied to a diverse set of use cases to increase customer engagement. For example, giving interactive voice response (IVR) or virtual assistant agents’ natural sounding voices or producing spoken versions of text-based content. For eLearning, audiobooks, newsreaders, and other content, you can also provide audio/visual experiences by synchronizing speech with facial animation or karaoke-style word highlighting.

Customers in the following 13 regions can now experience higher voice quality and lower latency when using Amazon Polly: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London) and AWS GovCloud (US-West). Refer to Global Infrastructure page for the latest list.
