Speaker is a WordPress Plugin designed to converts website page content into human-like speech. The plugin uses the latest technology of machine learning and artificial intelligence to play a high-quality human voice and add an audio player with content to the page. The Speaker plugin basis is the Google Cloud Platform, which ensures the plugin’s reliability and speeds anywhere in the world.
The Speaker WordPress Plugin converts text into human-like speech in more than 340 voices across 52+ languages and variants. It applies groundbreaking research in speech synthesis (WaveNet and Neural2) and Google’s robust neural networks to deliver high-fidelity audio.
The Speaker is the only WordPress Plugin that supports the Speech Synthesis Markup Language(SSML) standard. SSML allows you to fine-tune speech for each article on your website. You can pause, intonate, read numbers, and telephones in the usual format for humans. Besides, the SSML in the Speaker allows using several voices and languages in a single article. For example, you can voice an article with an interview in several different voices or use this feature for online language courses.
This product has been tested and is fully compatible with all popular WordPress editors. Incredibly flexible plugin settings allow you to enable/disable it on different pages, for different user groups, on different devices(mobile, tablet, desktop).
A lot of useful functions and settings
In the Speaker, you can create custom Speech Templates for each page. Also, for each post in WordPress, a custom Speech Template can be created and used.
Batch processing allows you to convert into speech all the existing pages of your site. To do this, just make a few clicks on the familiar WordPress interface. It doesn’t matter how many posts on your site are 5 or 5,000 for all of its speech will be synthesized and an audio file generated.
Customizable intro and outro for all synthesized speech files, a very convenient feature if you want all your files to be branded in the same style. For example, you can add a greeting or copyright at the beginning and/or end of each speech file.
Flexible design features allow you to customize the player’s appearance to your liking and place it in different positions on the page. Besides, you can place several players on one page. For example, if you want to insert audio versions of several other articles into one article to maintain the story’s context.
The Speaker is GDPR-compliant, which means it can’t use or send private or not public page content. The audio of a post/page is generated based on the current page markup available publicly. If you use password-protected post types available only for specific users or a group of users, the Speaker can’t work with them.
Many of the customers requested a link to download the audio file. And we did it for you! With just one setting, you can enable displaying the download link on both the Front-end and the Back-end.
With the Speaker, you can not only create an audio version of your text entries, but also construct an RSS feed for publishing on the largest podcasting services, such as Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and more.

Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Edge, or even the outdated versions of Internet Explorer – visitors will get an incredible experience in all browsers.
