BotTalk for Publishers.

Conventional text-to-speech solutions are designed to be generic. BotTalk focuses on one specific genre of text: news articles. This is why the audio BotTalk produces sounds so incredibly close to a newscaster voice you are used to hear on the radio.

With our One Line Seamless Integration you can set up BotTalk for your website in minutes.

BotTalk automatically converts any/every news article into most natural sounding native audio. In 26 languages and 73 different voices.

Head of Audience Development und Conversion, Augsburger Allgemeine

BotTalk enabled us to gain important experience in the field of TTS and to generate strategic insights into the use of the technology in the dedicated application fields.

BotTalk is the only solution on the text-to-speech market, that was specially designed for news content.
Our one line of code is a small iframe that you can integrate into any website easily. BotTalk will then parse the articles and produce audio editions on the fly. No further technical integrations needed from your side.
BotTalk Audio Player caches the audio edition. Meaning, the first listener will experience a short buffering (1-2 seconds). The rest will start the playback instantly.
Yes, you can integrate BotTalk Audio Player on your desktop and mobile website.
We use Google’s Wavenet and Amazon’s Polly as TTS engines but put our special secret sauce on top of them, so our audio sounds incredibly close to a human narrator.
You can change the look and feel of the audio player to fit your brand. Moreover, with 73 in 26 languages you can create a unique audio experience for your brand.
Our player automatically identifies headline, body or captions and only converts the relevant information to guarantee an optimum audio experience.
We frequently provide you with standardized audio reports to monitor your activities. A customized dashboard gives you access and in-depths insights anytime (available on Ultimate Package).
Our dashboard includes a multitude of measurements to give you full visibility. But we are open to any additional metrics and accept most of them. For example, you can fully track the conversion of your free users into premium users.

5 Questions About Text-to-Speech Every Publisher Should Ask

In our talks with publishers, we at BotTalk often face some common misconceptions about text-to-speech. It seems that many publishers don't realize how big of a leap text-to-speech technology has made in recent years.
