“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. Therefore, we’re excited to offer natural-sounding pronunciation with highly intelligible and pleasant voices in our users’ most widely used languages with Amazon Polly’s Text-to-Speech service.”

–  Paul Veugen, VP of Mobile, Mapbox


“As the leading translation and dictionary app, it is our mission at iTranslate to provide our users with the best possible tools to read, write, and speak in all languages across the globe. Amazon Polly provides us with the ability to efficiently produce and use high quality, natural sounding synthesized speech.”

– Alexander Marktl, CEO, iTranslate


“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.”

“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


“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


“We strive to make the cloud-driven classroom more engaging and effective for everyone, including users with reading and writing disabilities. Amazon Polly enhances our learning platform by integrating high-quality Text-to-Speech voices with our suite of AppWriter products.”

– Stefan Pal, COO, Wizkids


“We have a long relationship with Amazon’s Text-to-Speech technology and currently use it to create and distribute accessible information in the form of synthesized audio content for our many B2B and B2C customers, including utility companies, financial institutions, and media companies, as well as other customer-facing material such as magazines and publications. 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.”
