Speech Languages reference

This reference lists the supported languages for:

Text-to-speech languages

For text-to-speech conversion, we offer more than 100 languages and accents. For each supported languages, we may offer different voices from a gender perspective as well as from a quality perspective (standard versus neural).

Standard voices

  • Traditionally, these are based on concatenative synthesis, where speech is generated by stringing together short recorded audio samples of a human speaker. This method relies on a vast library of spoken words, syllables, or phonemes.
  • The speech produced is clear and intelligible, but it can sometimes lack the natural fluidity and intonation of human speech. It may sound more robotic or synthetic, particularly in how it handles intonation, stress, and rhythm.
  • Standard voices have no usage charges
Deprecation of Microsoft Azure standard voices

Microsoft is setting an end of service on all its standard voices by end of August 2024. If you are using any standard voice from where Microsoft Azure is the provider, you may either chose to switch to another equivalent standard voice from Google or Amazon, either adopt the new Microsoft neural voices. Note that:

Not all Microsoft standard voices have an equivalent with Google or Amazon

Microsoft Neural voices are subject to usage charges

Neural voices

  • These utilize advanced machine learning models, particularly neural networks, to synthesize speech. This method involves training the model on large datasets of recorded speech, enabling it to learn and mimic the nuances of human speech.
  • They offer a more natural, lifelike speech quality, closely mimicking the subtleties of human expression, emotion, and accent. The flow of speech is smoother, and it's better at handling complex intonations and varying speech patterns.
  • Neural voices are charged by character
Access to Neural voices

Neural voices will gradually be automatically enabled on exiting Infobip accounts between mid March 2024 and end of April 2024.

If you require access to neural voices starting March 13th but before your account is automatically enabled, please reach out to your account manager or to Infobip support.

SSML support

SSML stands for Speech Synthesis Markup Language. It serves as a powerful tool to finely tune the text-to-speech synthesis process. With SSML, you gain the ability to infuse synthesized speech with natural-sounding inflections, emphasis, pauses, and other speech characteristics. This control allows you to tailor the output to match your unique requirements and create more engaging and lifelike voice experiences for your users.

Infobip supports SSML for :

  • Google and Amazon Polly standard voices
  • Microsoft Azure neural voices

Microsoft Azure standard voices do not support SSML.

Here is the list of supported tags that can be used across voice API products:

    <speak> - Identifying SSML-enhanced text
    <break /> - Adding a pause 
    <say‑as> - Controlling how special types of words are spoken
    <p> - Adding a pause between paragraphs
    <s> - Adding a pause between sentences
    <emphasis> - Emphasizing words
    <sub> - Pronouncing acronyms and abbreviations
    <phoneme> - Using phonetic pronunciation
    <prosody> - Controlling volume, speaking rate, and pitch

Google, Amazon, and Microsoft offer other SSML tags, such as paraudioseq, and so on, but they are not supported in this current implementation.

This is an example of an SSML-enhanced tag text used in a Voice Message API: SSML in a Voice Message API

    "text": "<speak>Hello. This is a test message sent from <emphasis level=\"strong\">Infobip Voice Message API</emphasis>. Your confirmation code is <say-as interpret-as=\"spell-out\">12345</say-as>.</speak>"

For more information about the complete syntax of these SSML tags, see:

SSML characters in neural voices

When using neural voices, SSML characters are part of the total count of characters submitted for synthesis.
