Whenever you’re looking for a text-to-speech perfect for your project, it can take you hours to finally find the one that suits you better. There are a lot of tools that can do the job for you but not even one of them is the same, so you probably have a hard time finding a good TTS for gender-neutral voices.
Some sites use really masculine or feminine voices that possibly are not for you or the message you want to send. Especially in 2021, it’s important to have in mind that gender-neutral voices are as important as the other ones since they’re a lot of people in the world that don’t identify themselves with any of the genders imposed.
For that reason, here we show you the best TTS we could find with gender-neutral voices and a large list of languages, so you can choose wherever you want to. It’s called Woord, and it’s an online free TTS that has many utilities.
How Does It Work?
To use the gender-neutral voices, you have to enter GoWoord.com, go to ‘Online Reader’ or download the Chrome extension, paste your text on the whiteboard, then choose the gender you prefer, the language, and the voice, and press ‘Speak It”. And that’s it! If you want to edit the audio more, you can speed it up or adapt it to different devices in the advanced settings.
Woord also reads photos, documents, or scans, so you don’t worry if the text you want to convert is in one of those formats. Besides, this tool is available for Windows and Mac OS X.
Other tools you can use are NaturalReaders and Azure Microsoft, two online free TTS that will also help you find a large number of voices.
How Is Text-To-Speech Useful?
The audio produced by Woord or any text-to-speech has many features. First, you can download it and then edit it however you want. Any text-to-speech is really good for learning to read, do a presentation, use it as a voice-over for social media videos such as YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, Twitch, Facebook, and many more. If you have any trouble with speaking, this tool can also be really helpful to you and your family.
