Text to Speech Voices

The table on this page describes the available voices, languages, and locales which can be used in various text to speech functions with the Voice API.

Usage

You can implement the different languages and voices in the following ways:

  1. Using the locale ID. For instance, to specify US English, use en-US . If you use only the locale ID, the voice used will be the locale default as listed in the table.
  2. Using the locale ID and specifying gender. For instance, to specify a female voice in US English, use en-US/female . If you only specify the locale and gender, the voice used will be the locale/gender default as listed in the table.
  3. Using the Voice ID. If you want to use a specific voice, use the Voice ID as listed in the table.
Note:

Accepted values are not case-sensitive. th-th and th-TH are both acceptable values. Additionally, Joanna and joanna are both acceptable values.
