AI Dubbing: What Different Dialects Of English Sound Like
we are going to look AI dubbing and look at a few different samples of what an AI can sound like in English. We are going to do something pretty simple, we will use
the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog for our seed text.
If you don't know what this sentence is, quoting from Wikipedia, “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” is an English-language pangram—a sentence that contains all of the letters of the alphabet. It is commonly used for touch-typing practice, testing typewriters and computer keyboards, displaying examples of fonts, and other applications involving text where the use of all letters in the alphabet is desired.
Owing to its brevity and coherence, it has become widely known.
So we are going to use it as a
simple sample and use our AI to speak (text-to-speech AI) this sentence out and listen to the differences.
