Are you looking for the honest review of the newly launched Talkia? Unbiased review of Talkia?
Here in this post, I am going to share my personal experience and opinions on Talkia which will surely help you make a decision. I have also shared some better ways to make things easier and affordable for you.
If you ask me to answer straightforwardly, if I recommend you to buy Talkia.
I don’t recommend anyone to buy Talkia, there are a couple of reasons behind it.
I will share everything with you. Stay tuned till the end to know more about it and why I think it is not recommended.
I have also shared the alternatives as well.
Talkia is the text to speech software which helps you create human-like voice-overs using text or script. Talkia is new software launched by Bryxen. The same company that developed Toonly & Doodly in the past.
Talkia basically uses Google wavenet & amazon Polly for converting text into speech. API of Google Wavenet or Amazon Polly is used for softwares like text to speech.
If the actual cost to the software is calculated. Google wavenet will cost only $16 for 1 million characters. The same cost is for amazon Polly.
But Google wavenet is much better than amazon Polly. If you haven’t created a google cloud account and Amazon Web services then It will cost nothing.
Basically, to new customers, both companies allow one year for free.
Google will provide you $300 credits for 1 year just by entering your credit card details.
That means, you can get it for free for the first year.
However, implementing API is techy, not everyone can do it.
Talkia Alternative: Micmonster
I think the best alternative solution to talkia is Micmonster. Not only it sounds better than talkia however it also is affordable than talkia.
Check the video for voice samples.
The lifetime version of micmonster will cost you only $57. Unlike talkia where they offer the standard version at $67 and then $97/year for the enterprise version.
You can only render 5000 characters at once while using micmonster you can render 6000 characters.
This text-to-speech technology is becoming better day by day. So it is very important to choose e a product that will consistently provide you updates.
Micmonster is continuously providing updates and becoming better day by day.
Talkia is the dedicated tool for text to speech, but it is not reliable when it comes to the pricing and affordability.
When you are getting the same things with less pricing, it is not worth spending extra $600 per year from your pocket.
