Create a project for Custom Neural Voice

Content for Custom Neural Voice like data, models, tests, and endpoints are organized into projects in Speech Studio. Each project is specific to a country/region and language, and the gender of the voice you want to create. For example, you might create a project for a female voice for your call center's chat bots that use English in the United States.


Try Custom Neural Voice (CNV) Lite to demo and evaluate CNV before investing in professional recordings to create a higher-quality voice.

All it takes to get started are a handful of audio files and the associated transcriptions. See if Custom Neural Voice supports your language and region.
