Dear Microsoft Community,

I hope this message finds you well. I have a question regarding the availability of voices for the online Text-to-Speech (TTS) service for on-premise use.

I came across the question (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/1250136/which-voices-are-available-for-tts-onpremises) stating that these voices can be made available upon request. We have followed the necessary procedure and submitted a request. However, after getting the confirmation we received another link to the public container registry (https://hub.docker.com/_/microsoft-azure-cognitive-services-speechservices-neural-text-to-speech) instead. While this registry includes the two German offline voices, "de-de-katjaneural" and "de-de-conradneural," which we are already using, we are also interested in utilizing "de-de-amalianeural," "de-at-ingridneural," and "de-at-jonasneural," currently available for online use. Could you please confirm if these voices are also available for on-premise use?

Your prompt assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Best regards,
Philipp

    That' true this registry includes the two German voices, "de-de-katjaneural" and "de-de-conradneural,"https://mcr.microsoft.com/product/azure-cognitive-services/speechservices/neural-text-to-speech/tags

    The product team confirmed that can make these additional voices from the public cloud available in containers as required.
