Are computer generated voices acceptable?

Go to solution

Although my voice is ok, I've had the snuffles for far too long. I've starting creating my first course Learn C Games Programming and discovered that text-to-speech voices on Windows 10 are pretty good.  They sound natural with only the odd place where you might realise it's not a human.

 

I have done voice recording before (using Camtasia for screencasts)  and I feel that text-to-speech can increase the throughput. I'm happy to upload a sample of what I've done. 

 

So I just wanted to sound people out on this.

Text to speech software isn't allowed on Udemy. If students notice it's not a human, they can report you and your course can be taken down. https://support.udemy.com/hc/en-us/articles/229232367-Audio-Standards-and-Choosing-a-Microphone

Hi @DavidHBolton I know these things have improved but they are still text-to-speak and generally people can tell and although you think it's ok most people dislike it.

Dear all, 

 

today's text-to-speech voices are very good. Our students have never complained about the text-to-speech voices. Even most of the voices on the internet are computer voices. Why doesn't Udemy synchronize with digitalization and accept computer voices?

I disagree, just check Speechelo. I am sure even you cannot recognize it if you didn't know it is an AI voice!

Hello,

I totally agree with @CCECCentreo406  did you heard of Speechelo?!

They are super realistic and nice, why didn't allow instead of some terrible accents and pronunciation using those great natural technologies?

Your rules are not logical when technology going further every day.

Just try Speechelo, you cannot even recognize it is not a human!

I am waiting for the Udemy team to resppond.

Thanks.

Actually, I think I have a question//Solution.

Is that Udemy support multi-voice/language for tutorial videos?

If possible, we could put our original voice and multiple generated voice with different accents and languages.
