Amazon releases long-form speaking style for Alexa skills

Amazon releases long-form speaking style for Alexa skills

Amazon today announced a long-form speaking style for news and music content within third-party Alexa skills (i.e., voice apps). Starting this week in the U.S., developers can use the style, which is optimized for large amounts of textual information, to read aloud web pages, articles, podcasts, and storytelling portions of games.

The new speaking style could improve experiences by making verbalized text sound more natural, and by extension boost overall user engagement. Additionally, it could save developers cash and effort by eliminating the need to hire professional voice actors, as well as eliminate hours spent recording audio in a studio.
