Solidot | Amazon’s game engine uses speech synthesis instead of voice actors


want to add voice to your game but don’t want to spend money looking for voice actors ? Amazon’s game engine Lumberyard just joined the Text-to-Speech pipeline which can tell the text in the game in 50 different voices in 24 languages, and automatically render the game any 3D role Lip Sync Animation. The languages supported by the system include Brazilian Portuguese, Welsh, French, Norwegian, Russian, English, American, Canadian, Italian, Portuguese, German and Japanese. Amazon’s game engine comes from CryEngine and can be used for free. Its voice-synthesis capabilities are still limited, and Amazon has no intention of replacing a real voice performer for the time being, but as a tool to improve the efficiency of dubbing to game developers.
