BARCELONA, Spain, June 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Voiceful Characters is a powerful tool for game developers that transforms written text into the voices bringing characters to life in a video game (text-to-speech). A Deep-Learning-based technology, it creates high-quality, expressive, and realistic voices. This tool is not intended to substitute for irreplaceable human voices. It rather aims to complement them. The most common use cases are as follows:
- To create customised and dynamic dialogues from written texts.
- To provide voices to the game NPCs, particularly to those with non-human features, to whom different emotions can be conferred.
- To make text-based games more accessible for visually impaired people.
- To adjust the pace of storytelling by allowing interactive listening to dialogues during the development process.
Voiceful Characters will soon expand its product line to include real-time voice-change technology. It will allow developers to include voice-customization options for chat users in their multiplayer.
Voiceful Characters is a plug-in for the Unity videogame engine. It integrates seamlessly with projects, and, once imported, no internet connection is required. Three versions are available ― Free, Lite and Pro ― including pre-set settings and a broad range of options for voice design in its pro version. All the creation process is entirely carried out within the game. "We understand the complexity entailed in the development of a videogame. We want to offer a tool that allows studios to create and change voices to make their games more accessible, immersive or dynamic," explains Jordi Janer, CEO, Voctro Labs. Voiceful Characters is currently available in English for Windows and MacOS. A version for mobile platforms and other video game engines will soon be launched.
