The preview will give developers access to eight different voices via Polly, the Amazon Web Services text-to-speech service that uses deep learning to synthesize speech that sounds like a human voice. It's unclear when developers will be able to embed eight non-U.S. Take this survey to apply to participate in the developer preview, where you can help us refine the feature.

Way back in January 2017 at CES 2017 BMW and Nissan announced that the companies would be bringing Microsoft's Cortana to your vehicle as part of its Connected auto vision. The text-to-speech service today is capable of things like whispering, speech marks, using a timbre effect, and dynamic range compression - all which make the voices sound more natural. Amazon will provide more information to those who are selected. An Alexa Skills Kit comprises tools, application programming interfaces (APIs), code samples and documentation to enable developers to add skills to the 10,000-plus voice recognition capabilities already available on Alexa.
