Vocal Avatar

What am I required to do to create my digital voice?

You will have to create an account here and record yourself for around one minute.

Once my digital voice is created, who can generate phrases with it?

Only you. We will never let anyone use your digital voice without your permission.

What are you doing with my audio recordings?

We are using them to create your digital voice. This data will never be shared with others.

How can I improve the quality of my digital voice?

  • Record yourself in a quiet room with as little echo/reverberation as possible.
  • Use a high quality microphone.
  • Record yourself for longer.
  • Speak clearly and mark your intonation. Don't speak too slowly.

Can I delete my digital voice or my data?

Yes, you can delete your data at any time. Go to the account page and you will find two links at the end of the page.

I have created my digital voice but it doesn’t sound like me, why?

This is a early prototype of our technology and is therefore not perfect. It works better for some voices than others. In particular it works better for an American English accent. To improve quality, you can add more recordings (we suggest recording yourself for at least five minutes). It is also crucial to record youself with a good microphone and in a quiet room.

Does it only work for English?

Yes, for the time being, and it tends to works better for people with an American English accent.

Custom Voice

How can I create a custom voice?

You should contact us at sales@lyrebird.ai explaining your situation and how you plan to use the voice. More information can be found here.

How much data is required to create a Custom Voice?

Although we can work with as little as one minute of audio, more data will result in a better digital voice. Typically, a high quality voice requires a few hours of high quality data.

How much does it cost to create a custom voice?

It depends on many parameters, such as the amount of available data, the type of quality you would like, how you plan to use the voice. Please contact us at sales@lyrebird.ai for more information.

Is the process of voice creation completely automated?

Because each situation is particular, you need to contact us to sales@lyrebird.ai so that we can tailor a particular solution suitable for your use case.

I am not a programmer and don't know how to use an API, can I still use this product?

Yes, in addition to API access, we provide a web interface that lets you generate from your custom voices directly from your browser.

Can I control the intonation of a Custom Voice?

Yes to some extent. The more expression/emotion you have in your raw data, the easier it will be to control these things in the artificial voice.

Vocal Avatar API

When will the vocal avatar API be ready?

Very soon. Stay tuned. You can send us an email to sales@lyrebird.ai so that we add you to the waiting list.
