Amazon has recently improved the voice of Alexa and developers can implement “happy/excited” or “disappointed/empathetic” tone in the US as of now. The news style of Alexa voice is 31% more natural and music style of Alexa’s new voice is 84% more natural.
Alexa can respond in a happy/excited tone when a customer answers a trivia question correctly or wins a game. Also, it can respond in a disheartening voice when sports score and their favourite team has lost or letting customers know any sad news.
“Speaking styles are curated text-to-speech voices designed to create a more delightful customer experience for specific content. For example, the news speaking style makes Alexa’s voice sound similar to what you hear from TV news anchors and radio hosts.”
