Real Voice – Text to Speech Audio Player

الوصف

Real Voice is a text-to-speech plugin for WordPress that supports the Web Speech API, Google Text-to-Speech AI, and Azure Text to speech.

Pro Version

A Pro version of Real Voice with additional features is now available on our website. This upgraded edition includes more text-to-speech converters (other integrations for Amazon Polly and ElevenLabs are available), a dashboard to monitor all the API requests to the cloud services, options to generate the audio files automatically, and more.

Key Features

Automatically Add the Audio Player

The plugin automatically adds an audio player at the beginning of the articles. Note that from the plugin options, you can configure post types on which the audio player should be displayed.

Manually Generate the Audio Files

We have included a dedicated post sidebar section where you can create a new audio version of the post, update the existing audio version, or delete the audio data.

The website administrator, the editor, or other authorized users can at any time access to this area.

Monitor the Presence and State of the Audio Files

The plugin adds a new column named “Audio File” to the posts menu (and to the admin menu of all the other enabled post types). Here, you can verify if a specific post has its related audio version and if this version is up to date with the post.

Customizable HTML Audio Player

The plugin generates a custom audio player built with HTML and the browser API. You can customize the style of the player (color, typography, shadows, etc.) using the plugin options.

Responsive Audio Player

The audio player is responsive, and you can specify the breakpoint used to switch from the desktop to the mobile version with a dedicated option.

Supports Plain Text and SSML

You can generate the audio version of an article from plain text or SSML.

In the case of SSML, the supported tags vary depending on the selected text-to-speech converter.

Add Additional Text Before or After the Player

Use the dedicated options to configure the message displayed before (or after) the player. You can set messages like “Listen to this article”, “This article is also available in an audio format”, etc.

Optionally Read the Post Title

Do you want to use the post title as the first synthesized sentence? Then, use the dedicated settings option to apply this behavior.

Knowledge Base

Get started with the plugin or explore the advanced features with the documentation available in the Knowledge Base.

This plugin can optionally use paid third-party services

This plugin can optionally use third-party services to perform the text-to-speech conversion. If you configure one of these services and perform a text-to-speech conversion using the tools provided by the plugin, the third-party service will charge you according to their terms.

When the third-party service “Text-to-Speech AI” from Google Cloud is enabled

The plugin will use the Text-to-Speech AI from Google Cloud third-party service to perform the text-to-speech conversion when both these conditions are met:

  • Google Cloud Text-to-Speech AI is selected with the Text-to-speech Converter option available in the Text-to-Speech -> General section of the plugin.
  • A valid key is provided in the Google Cloud Secret Access Key option available in the Text-to-Speech -> Google Cloud Text-to-Speech AI section of the plugin options.

The Terms of Service of the Google Cloud Platform are available in the link below:

When the third-party service “Text to speech” from Microsoft Azure is enabled

The plugin will use the Text to speech from Microsoft Azure third-party service to perform the text-to-speech conversion when both these conditions are met:

  • Azure Text to Speech (Cloud service) is selected with the Text-to-speech Converter option available in the Text-to-Speech -> General section of the plugin.
  • A valid key is provided in the Azure Speech Resource Key option available in the Text-to-Speech -> Azure Text-to-speech of the plugin options.

When the plugin performs a text-to-speech conversion

In the contexts described below, the plugin performs a text-to-speech conversion. Note that with a third-party service enabled, this involves sending text/SSML to the third-party service API (on a remote server) to retrieve the audio data.

Text-to-speech conversions are performed when you click the Generate file button in the Audio File post sidebar section. For Classic Editor users, the text-to-speech conversions are performed when you click the Generate file button in the Audio File meta box.

Accessing the plugin options

You can access the plugin options anytime from the Real Voice menu on your WordPress dashboard. Please note that this menu is available only for WordPress users who own the manage_options capability.

DO NOT BUY!!!At the time of writing, this plugin is not dealing with long posts. I have posts with 7k characters (1.1k words) and it doesn't process them in Google Cloud or ElevenLabs.Azure, that was my 3rd choice (had to create the account, etc = hassle!) works pretty well, but like I said, it was my 3rd choice.However, it's not all bells and whistles with Azure, too. It frequently spits out errors "cURL error 18: transfer closed with outstanding read data remaining".I don't know what it is, whether the plugins is not tested properly or doesn't have enough error handling.Just poor, poor, poor quality.Another BIG problem is: Plugin generates audio control that is not mobile-friendly. Who in 2024 does not look after having it responsive? Is this a joke?This plugin is basically a misleading offer and incorrectt advertisement. YOU DO NOT GET WHAT YOU ARE TOLD YOU ARE BUYING!I would not recommend it to anyone who wants something reliable.Overall, really bad experience!Note: I will be happy to update this review once the plugin gets better, but at the moment I am sharing my current and honest experience and it's just UNUSABLE.
