Hey all!
So yesterday I've decided to make my digital voice, too. I've read the first 30 sentences so far, and the result was so shocking for me, I couldn't imagine someone will be able to imitate my voice with all of its intonations, though it sounded a bit younger than what I normally sound. And while I recorded the whole with a British accent, the system keeps searching for American English sounds and tries to put them instead whenever it finds them, that's what happens with the word water, it keeps putting an "R" at the end that lets me sound like I'm speaking Indian English, though I recorded the same word twice or thrice with a British accent in the script. Here's a link so that you can hear what my TTS voice sounds like in its current state:

Hello,
Is there any way that I can make this with iOS? I don't have an extternal microphone and the iPhone microphone sounds better than the laptop microphone.

You need something that supports Web RTC, like you do when using Alexa Sim. You'll most likely have to allow the app to use your microphone.

Or, try to contact developers. Maybe It can helps You.

OK, I made a new voice with my new logitech G930. The difference here is that this is a headset mic, with pretty much no bass at all, but good clarity, and unlike the internal laptop mic, it doesn't cut off hard consonants. It actually does pretty good with diction and stuff, and it was created with 100 sentences recorded by me. I'd like to add more, and probably will tomorrow. Here are several samples.

sample 1, sample 2, sample 3], sample 4.

Don't know if I will create a voice, but I don't know if in the future they support other languages, like spanish.

Today, is better, than yesterdday!
God bless you, a lot of mersy.
Gracias, thank you, your welcome, thumbs up, what ever, Luis Carlos. Have an awesome day!

They might, but let them first work on more variations of English because the website always keeps "americanizing" my accent though I recorded with a British one, but hopefully this started not to be the case anymore as I'm recording more and more sentences (60 sentences until now) and the digital voice even sounds much more similar to my real one. Something I even was impressed about is that it captures my speech rate and tries to simulate it completely, hell even my punctuation! I sometimes do not stop completely on commas, and in the first 30 sentences it might have not detected that while now it acts really like I do. The other day I found that one recorded himself singing the needed sentences then made a TTS voice of that and it sounded so funny how the software was dealing with that. Someone may also consider recording an already made TTS voice and seeing how it will resynthesize it, don't know if I will be doing that but I'm currently working on improving my own.

I kind of want to hear what the voice sounds like, I'd be interested to see what happens to singing when it's synthesized.

I hope Luis, that yes. But, I don't know everything about voices set on Markov model, if there is such options of It. But, It'll be great idea.

Here is the voice at 295 recordings. I only got stopped at the API limit the one day and was too lazy to record 5 more recordings. It got better sort of. There is a weirdness in the voice that I can only associate with the G930 mic I used to record it, which really is good for voice chatting, but not really for this application.

I also associate some of it to my bad reading of some of the longer sentences, even though I did 4 and 5 takes of some of them.

Hey again. I would like to share another sample of my voice with you, now with 90 sentences. I think the engine now has started to understand that I'm speaking with a British accent, making it ignore the phonemes it used to add so that it tries making my accent American, hopefully I might be able to completely convince it, once I reach enough recordings, to stop searching for or synthesizing American phonemes and only use the ones I provide in my recordings. You can see a noticeable improvement in the voice's quality: people who have heard my real voice can easily notify my accent and articulations.

This is the most ridiculous thing one can ever make or think off. I won't tell you what that is, just listen to the TTS generated message:

Hi everyone
Can I use the builtin microphone on the Mac with the site? I wanna try my accent to see what it sounds like.

Of course you can, but I heard you shouldn't do it using Safari for this case. Quote from post 17: "Try using chrome. I know safari doesn't play nice with scripted sites of this kind. For one, it never worked with facebook audio calls."
