Demo of Elevenlabs(Text to voice)

Testing out how well you can convert text to voice with tone

May 24, 2023

In this post, we are going to explore a fascinating AI-based technology developed by ElevenLabs - their Text-to-Voice software. This cutting-edge technology has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with written content, opening up endless possibilities for creativity and efficiency.

Starting with ElevenLabs, their platform provides a comprehensive suite of tools that allow users to create or clone voices according to their preferences in a module known as 'VoiceLab'. Once you have set up your desired voices, you can move on to 'Speech Synthesis'. This is where the magic happens and you generate your first audio outputs using the pre-made voices or the ones you've created or cloned.

But how does this AI model work? The AI has been trained on a vast amount of audiobooks, and to a lesser extent, podcasts. This extensive training enables it to understand and generate audio in the context it understands the best, providing the most predictable results. Interestingly, if you write something in the style of a book, the AI can sometimes interpret how to perform a certain passage from the context of the writing itself.

The system also allows for customization of the AI's performance. For instance, to achieve a more emotive range, you can lower the stability slider. However, this may sacrifice some degree of predictability.

One of the most promising aspects of this technology is its potential for improvement. With each successive update to the model, where it has been re-trained, the AI gets better at understanding different contexts as its dataset grows. This means it will continuously improve its understanding of the nuances between humans, languages, and accents.

Stay tuned for a detailed demo of this technology in action. We'll be showcasing how to create an account, clone your first voice, generate your initial voiceover, and more. Through this, we hope to give you a clearer understanding of how you can harness the power of ElevenLabs' Text-to-Voice technology for your own needs.

Until then, happy exploring!​1
