What is “Neural Text-To-Speech”?
Neural TTS is very high-quality speech, enabling crisp, natural and human-like voices. Where standard TTS strings together the phonemes of recorded speech Neural TTS converts a sequence of phonemes into a sequence of spectrograms and then applies uses a vocoder to convert the spectrograms in a continuous audio signal. This is made possible through the use of large data sets and provides a more natural-sounding voice.
