Lifelike Speech for Your Car Voice Assistant
From onboard GPS to branded in-car voice assistants, drivers are increasingly talking to their vehicles—and those vehicles are talking back. The question is, how will you provide the best possible user experience for your in-car computing products? Voice itself is a key component.
Voice control technology in cars relies on text to speech (TTS) as the sole point of connection between drivers and their in-car systems—the actual substance of the conversation and the literal voice of your brand. Give drivers a voice with personality; a voice that represents your brand alone; a lifelike, emotionally responsive TTS voice from ReadSpeaker AI.
Car voice assistants create a personal connection with drivers. Place your brand squarely on the other side of the conversation with ReadSpeaker AI’s custom TTS voices.
Bringing Car Voice Assistants to Global Markets
Voice control is crucial for a safe, enjoyable driving experience. As automotive manufacturers focus on smart car technology, they’re building powerful conversational interfaces into their infotainment systems. Third-party manufacturers are doing the same with in-car devices. These systems allow drivers to get directions, swap out music, place phone calls, and more—all without taking their hands off the wheel. It’s an on-road revolution.
That helps explain why nearly half of all U.S. adults use smart car assistants. In Germany and the U.K., more than 50 million drivers use voice-based infotainment and virtual assistant technologies. This is a global phenomenon, and manufacturers of both cars and in-car devices must take notice. And because of this international focus, car voice assistants need to be multilingual. ReadSpeaker AI offers natural, customizable TTS voices in more than 35 languages and counting—perfect for device makers and automotive companies with global footprints.
