Good news for our Swedish speakers! Today we released the first-ever genuine Swedish Text to Speech children’s voices: Filip and Freja. These voices are made by and for children, in collaboration with Acapela Group and Tobii Dynavox.
 
Two kids spent days in the studio recording all kinds of sentences, sounds and expressions that provide the basis for these natural-sounding voices. Interested in learning how children’s voices are created? Read it here.

Genuine children's voices

Text to Speech has been around for years and years. However, for a long time Text to Speech vendors were unable to provide young users with a realistic and natural-sounding voice. No genuine children’s voices were available before the release of our British English children’s voices back in 2012. The only available “children’s” voices were tweaked adult voices that sounded quite robotic.
 
Since 2012 we continued creating genuine children’s voices and now offer voices for British English, American English, Australian English, Spanish, German and Swedish. The Spanish voices are bilingual American Spanish and English so you can read aloud or speak using the same voice in both languages.

Bring your voices to life

Filip and Freja can read any Swedish text, and also include sounds and expressions that are great for storytelling. Need the sound of an ambulance or want to make comments like “Excellent!” and “I love you!” with more emotion? It’s all there!
 
The Swedish voices, as well as all the other children’s voices, are available to read any text on Mac through Infovox iVox. Combined with our word processor Wrise the voices can support Swedish children in reading and writing. The children's voices are also available in our storytelling app Pictello.
 
Listen to the voice samples below to experience how natural they sound. If you want to try the voices yourself, be sure to demo the voices in Infovox iVox and Wrise for free!
