Bringing Characters to Life with Amazon Polly Text-to-Speech


Bringing Characters to Life with Amazon Polly Text-to-Speech


To create a believable virtual agent or avatar involves many dynamic tasks, one of which is to coordinate your character’s facial animation with the voice file. Such character speech animation is traditionally considered important, but tedious work, especially when taking lip synchronization into consideration. In this webinar, we will demonstrate using speech marks with Amazon Polly. Learn how you can create lip-syncing avatars, create karaoke style text highlighting, and integrate speech capabilities into gaming engines like Amazon Lumberyard to give a voice to your characters.
