    There's five new services released but the visual one seems the most interesting.

    The Text to speech one is also pretty amazing, its the most realistic one I've ever heard.

    I don't exactly know how to use all these new artificial intelligence in our internet marketing career.

    It can do speech to text very fast, and it can help with coming up with keywords when you have use a bunch of pics with the api.

    Maybe we can use this to classify websites on the "sports" niche? Like getting some images from their sites and checking what sports they post about.

    Just brainstorming :p

    I'm going to have to check out the API and js code for the Speech to Text service that they offer some more. It seems to be faster than DNS while using less resources on the pc your talking into, DNS takes up 4GB of space that could be used for other things.

    Seems that I need to wait the next generation version of the speech to text service as the output for my test "one two three four five" was "Why are you all bar" lol Well, at least the word count was correct.

    Text-to-speech sounds very natural and realistic, in my oppinion even better then the acapela voices.

    The best thing about that, it seems that the demo on their page dont have a character limit and you can download the transcript so you dont need to rip it from their website (so you can download each sentence as a own audio file, reduces time of editing).

    I searched for a usable TTS software, all crack-ed (that word triggers the moderation system) downloads i could find are years old versions or dont sound natural at all, there are many good sounding ones with a demo on their website but all of them have a really short character limit.

    Watson TTS even produces natural results if you feed it with not commonly known words, for example try the following text

    "
    Hello, Welcome to the product review for the roor bong with 2 perculators built in.First i have to say, the bong is pretty rock solid quality and i can recommend it for every stoner out there who searchs a new pipe."

    It does sounds 90% natural, especially the second line, i am amazed.

    I hope they let the demo like it is for the next 1-2 years, possible that they do some changes (like background music or character limit) when they see that some people use the demo on a daily basis.


    STKMKTFTGRU: thank you so much for that thread, helped me a lot and i can finish my search for a tts software now.

    Edit: if you let it read english text with the male spanish voice you get a ridicolous accent like the mexican mafia guys have in all the movies.
