It delivers uniquely branded, more human-like, natural, expressive Text-to-Speech/synthesized voices. For restaurants whose business shifted to a “carry-out only” model during state-wide lockdowns of 2020, a voice-enabled digital assistant platform with advanced human-machine communication capabilities is invaluablein improving the customer experience.

With Speechmorphing, a conversational AI system can speak to customers in its uniquely branded voice. The voice expresses clear intent, uses appropriate tones and styles, and responds to customers with natural, personable, and intelligent speech. Moreover, it exhibits emotional intelligence, and supports the brand image, thus strengthening brand loyalty.

“Digital voices are extensions of the company brand. Therefore, it is critical to design an engaging persona with a unique voice that is true to that brand,” said Shing Pan, vice president of Marketing and Business Development at Speech Morphing, Inc. “Speechmorphing incorporates prosody, the expressive aspect of human speech, into its voice modeling, adding a dimension to digital voices that is lacking in conventional speech synthesis offerings.”

Speechmorphing creates high-quality, high-resemblance, expressive synthesized voices with just a few minutes of speech data, and then deploys it in a company’s voice system in days. This ease-of-use means that a customized human-machine communication system is now a real option for restaurants and other businesses in the service industry.
