"Amazon Polly"

What do you like best?

The speech output generated by Polly is very human-like. It included the nuances and subtleties when a human speaks. This gives a life-like touch to it. It is quite easy to use and offers few variations in the speech. The pricing for this service is the lowest compared to other cloud service providers. It can be used effectively outside the AWS environment only.

What do you dislike?

A very limited range of voices and languages only offered.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's cheap and very effective to use this tool to convert text to speech

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used in building a chatbot. By using Amazon Polly we can convert the text to speech.

What Natural Language Generation (NLG) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Amazon Polly : The talking software"

What do you like best?

Multiple voice options based on gender and region make it a awesome tool.It feels like a human is speaking. .

What do you dislike?

Its comes as a part of AWS and this makes it not easily accessible to all developers without on-boarding into AWS that requires credit card.So AWS account becomes a must to use this tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In case there is some requirement to build apps like amazon echo or apple siri, this app can be useful,

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Realtime text to speech conversion feature and pay as use has given the advantage of using this amazon service as a best choice for cost effective voice enabled apps.

"One of the coolest softwares in the digital age"

What do you like best?

I love the simplicity of using Amazon Polly. Like most Amazon products, Polly is very user-friendly and simple to use.

What do you dislike?

Occasionally you will type in a name or a slang word and Polly will mispronounce the word. This can be frustrating if there is not a synonym for the word you're trying to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are in need of professional voice services, this is a must. Especially for the price.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Polly for YouTube videos and instructional videos with my company. Instead of having to record and re-record a human voice with mistakes and poor quality audio, we can have high-quality grade narrations!

"Amazon Polly Review"

What do you like best?

I enjoy the freedom of voice activated commands.

What do you dislike?

The set-up process is a bit lengthy. The step-by-step process appeared repetitive. Also, background noise must be halted completely while submitting voice sample. This is not always easy if one is located on a floor of a call center.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The time-saving steps involved, less keyboard use. It has been beneficial by allowing users to save time by use of voice activation.

The ease of use to learn and get started with. The console is a great way to get a feel for the product and using the API is almost as easy!

What do you dislike?

Not much! I would like to be able to extend the SSML spec so that I can perform things like character/voice switching.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Voice synthesis as part of spoken word products such as podcasts and news articles. We have been able to provide inject dynamic and personalised content in near real-time.

I only wish that there were more features that allowed the use of different electronic devices to be used.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

More user friendly features.

I have realized that this is a tool that can be used by school districts to a larger degree.
