Forget the "orders" of a simple voice from Siri, Alexa, or another GPS assistant, which tells you to "turn right in 300 meters". Cerence, voice software in cars from brands such as Toyota, Audi and BMW, launched this Monday a new service that "clones" real voices so people like your mother or sister can give directions.
"My Car, My Voice" is the name of the service that is only available in the car itself and not in Google Assistant or Siri. But how does this work? The company CEO explains in this video.
“Certainly My Car My Voice translates into a whole new experience,” says the CEO of the company in a statement issued Monday. “Imagine having your wife, best friend or other family member as the voice inside your car. ", he says.
To generate the voice it is necessary for a person to play a series of phrases in the Cerence application. To do this, the company uses text-to-speech technology.
