Free trial release of VoiSona Talk, a text-to-speech software that uses AI technology to reproduce realistic speaking voices!

Techno-Speech, Inc. (located in Higashi-ku, Nagoya and led by Representative Director Keiichiro Oura) released its AI speech synthesis software "VoiSona Talk" under development on a free trial at noon on September 1, 2023.

As of September 1, 2023, our AI singing software "VoiSona" (previously known as "CeVIO Pro") marks its first anniversary since its official release. Currently, we offer nine voice libraries and remain committed to sincerely enhancing its functionality, providing updates, and introducing additional song voice libraries. We are immensely thankful to our users for their valuable feedback, warm words of encouragement, and for creating a countless number of songs with our software.
As a commemorative project for the first anniversary of the official release of VoiSona, we have released a free trial of VoiSona Talk, an AI speech synthesis software under development. It is compatible with both Windows and macOS.

You are able to start using the software free of charge by registering an account, downloading, and installing the software from the following special page. If you are already a "VoiSona" user, you do not need to register an account again.

The default voice library includes "Tanaka San," a female voice library with an appealing gap between a cute, slightly childish voice and a calm tone of voice. The voice waveform data output by "VoiSona Talk" and "Tanaka San" can be used free of charge in principle, with some exceptions, for both personal and corporate, commercial and non-commercial use. We hope you will find them useful in your creative activities.
