With the addition of IVONA TTS, we are able to offer many more language options for developers. Here is a list of what is currently available:

  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • UK English
  • US English
  • Welsh English
  • Australian English
  • Indian English
  • French
  • Canadian French
  • German

  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • US Spanish
  • Swedish

The TTS documentation page gives further detail on choosing and using a TTS voice, including a link to a tool that will play samples of the voices available for a particular language or gender allowing a comparison to be made.

More voices are in the pipeline from IVONA. Take a look at their website to see what’s coming. If you don’t see the language you need then let us know.

Happy developing.
