Good evening, this is Bono.
I have recently made a video to promote an affiliate site I purchased.
In such a situation, I was wondering if there is any text-to-speech software that can give me a good narration? I've been looking for a good text-to-speech software, and I'd like to share it with you.
What is Speech Synthesis?

The quality of this is also quite high, and I recommend that you experience it for yourself.
However, the fee is unknown, as it is for corporate customers.

For now, you can either buy AItalk3 or try to create your own narration, hoping that the technology will evolve in the future.If I find another interesting speech synthesis in the future, I will share it with you.
