Integrated Voice

Unparalleled Software Features

Text-To-Speech IPA Exclusive

Potter's exclusive text-to-speech feature allows in-software creation of spoken audio messages, avoiding the need for complicated 3rd party software or expensive voice artists. By utilizing the WaveNet neural network, our voice panels can generate speech that sounds more natural than other text-to-speech systems, producing human-like emphasis and inflection on syllables, sounds, and words.

Listen to a sample of WaveNet text-to-speech:

Speech generation is created entirely within Potter's programming software with an easy, point-and-click interface. Multiple voices, genders, and accents can be selected allowing your system to match customer and locality preferences. Additionally, rate of speech can be selected providing fine-tuned intelligibility. Simply type your message and within seconds, it's ready to preview, save, and deploy.

Audio Patterns

Audio patterns provide a user-friendly interface for creating, organizing, and editing audio messages. Users can click and drag audio sources onto a timeline allowing multiple, nested audio loops. Patterns can be played from within the software to test before uploading to the panel. Audio sources include predefined messages and tones, imported audio or tone files, text-to-speech, and audio recorded directly in the programmer.

Listen to an assembled audio pattern:

When changes to individual audio sources are required, patterns are automatically updated in real time, preventing outdated messages from being deployed. Additionally, users no longer need to know the sample rate of audio files, simplifying the import process.
