Voice AI technology has progressed immensely in the last few years. Nowadays, entrepreneurs can utilize a wide variety of tools to generate a computer-generated voice for their brand. Whether we’re talking about cloning or text-to-speech features, you can use these programs to simplify your content creation process and penetrate various markets. 

What Exactly Does AI Voice Cloning Software Do?

These speech tools can generate synthetic voices by recording voice samples and analyzing their patterns. The AI technology relies on large datasets of prerecorded human speech to replicate outputs similar to the original ones. The best thing is that you don’t have to spend days in a studio for software to work; a short input will do the trick in most cases.

You might feel compelled to use lifelike speech synthesis for various types of audio content, including: 

  • Podcasts
  • YouTube videos
  • Ads 
  • Video game dialogue
  • Film and TV show narration 
  • eBooks 
  • Online courses 

Content creators can utilize deep learning techniques for just about any type of video or audio output. The software is especially popular when creating podcasts, but it might also serve a purpose for online courses, ads, and YouTube videos. 

However, given that you can create this type of audio content by yourself, the question arises as to why you would rely on tools. Basically, there are a few reasons why using voice cloning technology would make a lot of sense:

  • Audio software helps you retain the same level of consistency during the content creation process 
  • You have suffered an injury, and you can’t replicate the original voice you previously used for your content 
  • Using voice assistants can save you a lot of time during content creation 
  • Using custom voices is a great solution for creators who have an accent, a lisp, or poor voice quality 
  • AI-generated voices can also be used for dubbing 

Unfortunately, the use of a voice model might also lead to some ethical issues. For example, entrepreneurs might feel compelled to replicate the voice of Hollywood actors without paying royalties. Using these voices might also trick listeners into thinking you belong to a different culture or social class. 

Professional voice cloning has become a common feature of AI tools. Besides specialized audio software, you can find this functionality in many video generators. After testing some of the best products on the market, I’ve decided to create a list of 15 of the best tools to help you on your entrepreneurial journey. 

Murf AI

Murf AI

Murf AI comes with a large list of premade human voices for different use cases. You can try out the marketer’s voice, educator, podcaster, customer support, and a few other archetypes, thus simplifying your content creation process. Besides these presets, there are other 125+ character voices you can explore by relying on text-to-speech technology. 

The thing I love about the Murf studio is its extensive speech editor. Users can change the speed of different sections, introduce interjections, and change pitch and voice emphasis. While working within the dash, you can also introduce new sounds, images, and background music to instill life into your audio files. 

PlayHT

PlayHT

Aside from being a perfect tool for creating quality voice clones, PlayHT allows you to turn textual inputs into speech voices. The software comes with API access, allowing users to integrate the tool into their existing workflow. PlayHT is especially great at understanding context, ensuring the outputs have a much better delivery.

The software supports 142 languages and accents, so everyone can benefit from it, regardless of their geographical location. With this speech platform, you’ll gain access to 907 ultra-realistic voices and various styles. A feature that I found intriguing was multi-voice, which allows you to insert several audio samples into the same file. 

LOVO AI

LOVO AI

Lovo is a comprehensive voice cloning service that utilizes several machine learning technologies. Besides allowing you to replicate your natural voice, the software implements a text-to-speech feature, AI writer, and AI image generator. The professional-grade platform gives you access to 500+ voices in 100 world languages, as well as to a vast image library.

Because of that, Lovo AI is a perfect solution for entrepreneurs who create and repurpose content for different sites. Its video editor is second to none, allowing you to push out website content, ads, and social media content from a single dashboard. The last thing I want to mention is that Lovo AI comes with an API, which is a welcome addition for some users. 

Resemble AI

Resemble AI

If you’re looking for a perfect voice platform, you shouldn’t look any further than Resemble AI. The software provides several powerful features for your marketing team, including text-to-speech, speech-to-speech, language dubbing, and neural audio editing. The software gives you granular control over your voice recordings, allowing you to choose the right human emotions and intonations for different sections. 

Resemble AI does a great job of addressing certain security issues. The platform comes with a deepfake detector and watermark creator, ensuring that every file is protected without you breaking any rules. As for the voice cloning process, the tool requires you to record 25 sentences, after which it takes 3 minutes to replicate your voice. 

Speechify

Speechify

The most curious thing about Speechify is that the product is advertised as a learning tool. Nevertheless, most of its users are marketers and entrepreneurs who need voice cloning and text-to-speech features. Speechify also gives you access to some other cool functions, such as AI dubbing, AI avatars, transcripts, and a video generation suite. 

When you access the platform, you can choose one of the numerous presets or clone your own voice. The software is quite intuitive, so you won’t need much time to get ahold of things. Furthermore, you’ll gain access to all sorts of polishing features, such as pauses, speed and volume changes, and emotions. 

Respeecher

Respeecher

The first thing worth mentioning is that Respeecher doesn’t offer a generic text-to-voice feature. Instead, all of their audio presets are studio-made, ensuring the highest output quality for users. The company has put emphasis on mimicking real voices with a full range of emotions and unique intonations for specific words and sentences. 

One of the things that piqued my curiosity was the custom voice clone service. Basically, you can pay the company to create a clone of a specific voice with their consent. That way, you can generate all sorts of customized voices for your projects, including those of famous people. 

Descript

Descript

Descript is primarily a video creation platform, although it comes with its fair share of audio features. The software creates an automatic transcript of your recordings, which you can edit at a time. Coupled with a sophisticated drag-and-drop interface, makes the Descript one of the simplest AI generative tools on the market. 

AI cloning can be used as a stand-alone feature, or you can combine it with other formats and tools. Based on what I’ve seen, Descript requires a few minutes to generate your digital twin. That way, you can create unique presets for a range of emotions, generating a curious, eager, or excited audio recording. 

Overdub

Descript Overdub

Overdub is a specialized tool made by the Descript company. Unlike the original software, this product specializes in overdubbing existing content. Overdub creates textual transcripts of your audio recording, allowing you to change the audio clip by simply editing the lines. With this program, you can significantly cut your production time by avoiding rerecordings. 

Among other things, the platform can even out your outputs. It can fix any issues caused by switching microphones as well as voice inconsistencies. Furthermore, the tool can combine outputs delivered by different speakers and use one voice to unify them. The software also has fantastic collaboration features that can come in handy for larger content teams. 

ReadSpeaker

ReadSpeaker

ReadSpeaker is a platform that supports 50+ languages and includes 200+ AI voices. Like many other similar tools, it gives you full control over the outputs, changing reading speed, pitch, accent, breaks, and other elements. The thing I love about this software is that it comes with a built-in dictionary, allowing you to define how certain words are pronounced. 

The tool also has a cloning feature that can mimic your voice with an uncanny precision. I also like that you can switch between voices by relying on SSML code. There are also a few other functions worth mentioning, such as batch processing and analytics suite. 

Listnr

Listnr

The first thing you’ll notice when you visit Listnr’s website is a wide variety of AI voices and languages. The software supports numerous global languages delivered by 1,000+ voice actors. As with many similar tools, you can change the emotional delivery, add breaks, and introduce other elements to your outputs. 

My favorite feature is the interface; it’s quite simplistic, allowing you to streamline your audio production. Users can create a new podcast in minutes by relying on assets provided within the dashboard. 

Coqui

Coqui

Coqui combines several deep learning technologies to deliver astounding audio output. Although the text-to-speech tool is no longer available via the official site, you can still get it through third-party platforms. The software comes with an API, allowing you to integrate it with your current marketing workflow for free. 

Veritone Voice

Veritone Voice

Besides allowing you to copy other people’s voices, Veritone comes with a large library of premade avatars that can be used for just about any promotional content. What’s better is that these voices can be transferred to other tools and platforms, ensuring that you squeeze some extra value from the software.

The tool’s main selling point is its speed. Veritone Voice can clone a voice within a few moments, which means you can generate a new persona for every post you create. It’s also worth mentioning a wide range of editing tools that you can use to perform pre and post-editing. 

Voicemod

Voicemod

Voicemod is a funky audio tool geared toward gamers, YouTubers, and streamers. By using this platform, you can instantly play meme clips, short videos, or any other type of audio file. All you have to do is open the dashboard, search from the list of available sounds (or find them online), assign a key, and use these sounds while streaming or gaming.

The cloning feature, in particular, is much more advanced compared to what other programs offer. Once you create an AI counterpart, you can modify the speech by making it more sensual, more robotic, or altering it in some other way. That way, you can create some incredible voice branding for your channels. 

Fliki

Fliki

Fliki is a video creation platform that allows you to generate all sorts of AI content. With this platform, you turn any idea into content by simply providing a short textual description. Alternatively, you can upload blog posts, PPTs, and tweets to serve as a basis for your content generation process. 

Its text-to-speech tool comes with 2,000 speech presets and supports 75+ languages. Alternatively, you can use the platform to clone your voice and use it during video production. The software also has great localization features that would allow you to translate existing audio clips into different languages. 

HeyGen

HeyGen

One of the best programs within its respective category, HeyGen allows you to create avatar-based videos with minimal effort. The software comes with a massive library of stock, studio, and photo avatars that can be used in any situation and any content. All you need to do is choose the right elements for your content and glue them together.

On top of these features, HeyGen also has advanced audio functionality. The software features 300+ quality voice clones that can express themselves in 40+ popular languages. Of course, you can also tinker with voice cloning, and the software also gives you access to an AI writer. 

AI Voice Cloning Conclusion

Choosing the right audio tool for your business can be a bit tricky. First, you need to determine if a program specializes in voice cloning or if it has some added functionality. The rule of thumb is that the more comprehensive software is usually more expensive, which can be a major factor when making your decision.

So, if you’re just looking for an AI voice cloning app to create podcasts and similar audio content, I suggest you go with something like Lovo or Murf. However, if you’re also looking to make videos, it might be better to try HeyGen.
