Introduction to Text-to-Speech (TTS) Technology and AI Voice Generation

Text-to-Speech (TTS) technology is a synthesis process that converts written text into audible speech. With the meteoric rise in machine learning, this synthesis has reached a point where it's virtually indistinguishable from human-produced speech. Such a leap in technology paves the way for enhanced auditory experiences.

Understanding the difference: text to speech vs. voice generator


Text to Speech technology converts written content into spoken words, enabling users to generate audible content from text-based sources instantly. It serves as an efficient tool for creating spoken content, helping in developing audiobooks, assisting visually impaired users, and more.

An AI Voice Generator allows users to construct voices themselves. With this technology, users can build entirely new synthetic voices through Voice Design or replicate their own with Voice Cloning. These newly created or cloned voices can subsequently be utilized to convert text to speech, offering a personalized and versatile vocal experience.

Crafting the Perfect Voice with Voice Design

If writers opt against using their own voice, ElevenLabs offers them the creative liberty to craft a unique one. Through the Voice Design tool, voices can be tailored based on age, gender, and accent preferences. This means a suspense thriller can have an entirely different voice than a romance novel, further immersing the listener in the story's ambiance.

Voice Library: Explore New Narrative Dimensions with ElevenLabs

In the ever-evolving landscape of writing and storytelling, there's always a niche for innovation. At ElevenLabs, we've refined the notion of voice sharing through our Voice Library platform. Designed specifically for voice aficionados, this feature enhances the potential of Professional Voice Cloning, fostering collaboration, discovery, and rewards.

Community Voice Sharing & Rewards:

  • Share and Shine: After crafting your unique voice using our Professional Voice Cloning, you're given the unique opportunity to share it with our community. While this choice rests entirely with you and by default your voice remains exclusive to you, sharing can pave the way for rewards and recognition.
  • Earn While Others Innovate: When fellow writers or creators use your shared voice for their narratives, you earn rewards. It's our way of appreciating your contribution to the expansive voice library.
  • Discover & Collaborate: The Voice Library is a nexus for creators to source diverse voices for their narratives. Every voice within the library is accompanied by a free commercial use license, offering writers the adaptability to seamlessly integrate them into their tales.

ElevenLabs' Voice Library epitomizes our vision of merging cutting-edge voice technology with community-driven collaboration. By engaging in voice sharing, you're not merely aligning with the forefront of narrative innovation, but also actively partaking in a vibrant ecosystem that uplifts creators across the spectrum.

Multilingual Storytelling Unleashed

With the introduction of our Eleven Multilingual v2 model, writers aren't restricted to narrating their tales in a single language. The same authentic voice can narrate stories across 28 different languages, truly globalizing the reach of their narratives.

Supported languages now include: English, Korean, Dutch, Chinese, Turkish, Swedish, Indonesian, Filipino, Japanese, Ukrainian, Greek, Czech, Finnish, Romanian, Danish, Bulgarian, Malay, Slovak, Croatian, Classic Arabic, Polish, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Hindi, Portuguese, and Tamil.

Narrate with Your Authentic Voice: Professional Voice Cloning

Imagine reading a captivating novel, only to hear it narrated in the author's genuine voice. Writers can now leverage Professional Voice Cloning to do just that – offer their audience an authentic auditory experience by narrating their creations in their distinct voice.

Leveraging Voice Cloning for Diverse Storytelling

Often, writers are limited by the sheer effort and time it takes to convert their narratives into different formats or languages. With Professional Voice Cloning, this constraint is dramatically reduced, and the landscape of storytelling takes a revolutionary stride forward. What's more, Professional Voice Cloning is fully integrated with our multilingual model, which means that any writer can now narrate their work in their own voice, in all the supported languages.

Consider the possibility of translating your best-selling stories into different languages, all while retaining the authenticity of your own voice. These multilingual renditions, when shared on global platforms, can engage readers from non-English speaking backgrounds. This doesn't just expand your work's reach; it also opens doors for potential collaborations with international writers or publishers.

By harnessing PVC and voice generation technologies, writers can venture into various multimedia content creation avenues, from audiobooks to animated narratives – all in their signature voice. Such diversification allows writers to truly embrace the potential of being omnipresent across media platforms, heralding a new chapter in the world of storytelling.

The Process: How to Clone Your Voice

For those interested in accessing PVC, at ElevenLabs the process is streamlined for precision.

  1. Go to VoiceLab
  2. Add a new voice
  3. Choose Professional Voice Cloning
  4. Upload voice samples

The last step is important to get right. Professional Voice Cloning is distinct from our Instant Voice Cloning feature, as it focuses on training a unique model on an extensive dataset of voice samples.

To achieve the best results, there are crucial things to keep in mind:

  1. Quality of Audio: The training data must have clear audio files from a single speaker devoid of background disturbances or effects.
  2. Uniformity: For consistent output, ensure uniformity in recording conditions, reverb, and microphone distance across sessions.
  3. Consistent Speaking Style: Your voice delivery style should be consistent across all samples. For instance, if producing an audiobook, then the training data should consist of audiobook-style reading.
