Text To Speech Integration (TTS)

Bright Pattern integrates with text-to-speech (TTS) providers IBM Watson and Google Cloud for creating voice prompts. When text-to-speech functionality is enabled, call prompts may use a variety of pre-recorded voices, accents, and languages to automate responses.

Watson Properties

After you add this TTS account, the Properties dialog will appear. In Properties, you enter the credentials of your Watson Text-to-Speech service.

Authentication method

Select either API key or username/password (legacy). Upon selection, the appropriate fields will appear for entering your credentials.

API key

The API key (string) for your IBM Text to Speech service instance, which is used for making secure, authenticated requests to IBM Cloud APIs. You can find the API key in your Text to Speech service credentials.


IBM Text to Speech credentials

Username/password (legacy)

The username and password are the username (string) and password (string) that were originally used to authenticate IBM Cloud APIs.

The username and password were previously provided in the service credentials for the service instance. We refer to username/password authentication as "legacy" because IBM does not support this method of authentication, as of October 30, 2019. IBM now supports only IAM authentication (API key). You can learn more about IAM authentication at IBM Cloud Docs.

Load Voices

Allows you to choose a voice type from a preconfigured list of IBM voice models. For more information, see How to Load Voices from IBM Cloud Text to Speech API.
