Amazon Polly turns text into lifelike speech, allowing you to create voice-enabled applications. We’re excited to announce the general availability of all Neural Text-to-Speech (NTTS) voices in Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asian Pacific (Tokyo), EU (Frankfurt), and EU (London) Regions. You can now synthesize over 14 NTTS voices in these Regions, including the Newscaster and Conversational speaking styles. In addition, you can continue to synthesize the over 60 standard voices available in 29 languages in the Amazon Polly portfolio.

Learn how our customers are using Amazon Polly voices to build new categories of speech-enabled products, including voicing news content, games, eLearning platforms, telephony applications, accessibility applications, Internet of Things (IoT), and more.

Amazon Polly voices are high quality, cost-effective, and ensure fast responses, making it a viable option for low-latency use cases.

Amazon Polly also supports SSML tags, which give you additional control over your speech output.
