Who’s that lady reading the article?
That lady is Polly. Polly – full name Amazon Polly – is a text-to-speech service. We’ve given her an Australian accent and she’s reading the articles pretty well, but she does sometimes struggle to fully comprehend complicated sentences. So although she sounds pretty lifelike she does occasionally sound a little robotic.
