Speech-to-text: This tool gives you a transcript of all the articles or books you liked

We’re living in a time where being confined to a space at home is deemed normal. With everything from office meetings to events and from personal tutoring to online classes becoming virtual, people working remotely or students studying at home find it tougher to pay attention and take notes during these online video sessions.

To break the hassle, a new automated transcription service called Woord makes life easier by directly transcribing any text content into audio immediately without any disturbance.

The voices are natural and you can choose between different genders or neutral voices. Also, the tool gives you the ability to convert text to speech in 8 languages (Spanish, English, French, Russian, Portuguese, Swedish, Turkish and German).

All the languages come with different accents,  like Brazilian Portuguese or Canadian french.

If you need to integrate your app and convert programmatically text into audio, you could also get an API key to use Woord’s Text to Speech API.

To use these features, one simply needs a Woord’s account, you can sign up here. It’s free up to 10 articles/audios per month. Plus you can download Text to Speech Extension for Google Chrome to listen to Webpages.

What are the most common use cases for this service?

With Woord, you can bring your applications to life, by adding life-like speech capabilities. For example, in E-learning and education, you can build applications leveraging Woord’s Text-to-Speech (TTS) capability to help people with reading disabilities. Woord can be used to help the blind and visually impaired consume digital content (eBooks, news etc). Woord can be used in announcement systems in public transportation and industrial control systems for notifications and emergency announcements. There are a wide range of devices such as set-top boxes, smart watches, tablets, smartphones and IoT devices, which can leverage Woord for providing audio output. Woord can be used in telephony solutions to voice Interactive Voice Response systems. Applications such as quiz games, animations, avatars or narration generation are common use-cases for cloud-based TTS solution like Woord.
