Frequently asked questions

  • What multilingual voices are available? 

    We will be launching Mandarin, Korean, and Japanese voices soon. We will also be rolling out additional voices in the next few months. Stay tuned! 

  • Will you have self-serve voice cloning? 

    Yes! We will be rolling out self-serve voice cloning in the future. However, for the best results, we recommend custom voice training – which is currently available. Get in touch here for more info. 

  • How many hours of audio do you need for custom voice training? 

    We can train a cloned model with as little as 20 minutes of audio. However, we recommend more for the best results. 

  • How to AI voice video game characters?

    You can use AI to voice video game characters via API or the Inworld AI Engine. With the API, you can either record voices during production or use it for real-time text-to-speech in your game. 

    If you use the Inworld AI Engine, which powers all aspects of NPC performances including dialogue, voice, behavior and actions, memory, and more, our voices are already integrated and can be used at no extra cost. 

    To use the API, you’ll need to sign-up for Inworld Studio and obtain an API key from our Integrations tab. You can then make your first API call following the instructions in our Docs and start to synthesize speech. You can then use the API to record voices or integrate our API for real-time speech capabilities.
