BeeLiked

BeeLiked is an engagement marketing platform that provides brands with a wide variety of contest and game software to engage their online audience, generate leads and drive sales.

“When Dan Brown’s publishers, Doubleday, approached us to power a contest for his new novel Origin, we realized we needed to create something special. We came up with the concept of the world’s first virtual book signing where, having voted on their book cover design, entrants would receive a personalized video. Not only do they see Dan Brown write them a personal message, they are welcomed into his house by name as well. We chose Amazon Polly to power the voice in the personalized video due to the ease of integration, the speed at which the voice file can be created, and the quality of the voices available. We required a British voiceover and selected Brian.”

– Damien Dutton, CEO and Founder, BeeLiked 

InHealthCare

"In a world of innovative apps and clever technology, people sometimes forget there are many individuals who are excluded from the digital world for social, economic or health reasons. As a trusted partner of the NHS, we rely on Amazon Polly to do all the synthesized speech for our automated telephone calls. Individuals can answer questions and provide information using the telephone’s keypad. Amazon Polly helps us make sure these people are being cared for."

– Mike Wray, Senior Software Architect, Inhealthcare

Storybulbs

"Amazon Polly has enabled Storybulbs to add another dimension to our video personalization platform. Now our users not only view relevant and engaging video content, but they also hear the voiceover speaking directly to them. Speech personalization was the most requested feature by our customers and AWS Polly accelerated our ability to deliver this enhanced user experience."

– Greg Clark, CEO and Founder, Storybulbs

Aloud

"Aloud enables publishers to turn existing content into audio and monetize it. Polly gives us speed, quality and amazing phonemes customization options. Its true-to-life audio allowed us to switch from voice actors to a full programmatic solution at a fraction of the cost. As an added benefit the audio ingestion process now occurs in real time so users can listen to stories as they happen, not hours or days later.”

– Pierre Bonnais, CEO & Founder, Aloud

Mapbox

"Our Mapbox Navigation SDK offers a complete turn-by-turn navigation solution that you can easily add to your iOS or Android application, and having clear, well-understood voice guidance is critical to the user experience.

– Paul Veugen, VP of Mobile, Mapbox.

Duolingo

“I can't think of many use cases where accurate pronunciation is more important than when you're learning a new language. We have found that the Amazon Polly voices are not just high in quality, but are as good as natural human speech for teaching a language.”

– Severin Hacker, CTO, Duolingo

Washington Post

“We’ve long been interested in providing audio versions of our stories but have found that existing text-to-speech solutions are not cost-effective for the speech quality they offer. With the arrival of Amazon Polly and its high-quality voices, we look forward to offering readers more rich and versatile ways to experience our content.”

– Joseph Price, Senior Product Manager, Washington Post

GoAnimate

“Amazon Polly gives GoAnimate users the ability to immediately give voice to the characters they animate using our platform. This is especially helpful in scenarios where live voice-over is either resource or time prohibitive, such as when developing a video in many languages or within pre-production to speed the approval process. The speech is integrated seamlessly with our rich set of pre-animated assets, which reinforces GoAnimate’s ease-of-use and affords our customers both efficiency and speed to market.”

– Alvin Hung, CEO and founder, GoAnimate

With the announcement of Amazon Polly, we’re excited about the ability to provide an even better experience to these customers by delivering incredibly lifelike voices that will captivate and engage our audience.”
