Personalize each phone call to your contacts.
Text To Speech (TTS) is a form of speech synthesis that converts text into a voice output.
When TTS was first introduced in the mid-1900's, the voice output sounded much more like a computer voice than a human voice.
After many years of development, TTS still does not sound 100% like a human speaking, but it has come a long way and it is now commonly used in voice broadcast applications.

Yes! This technique is commonly used by doctor offices.
In a voice broadcast, the TTS portion of the message can be dynamically merged from the phone number list.
Below is an example TTS voice broadcast message for an appointment reminder. The bold words are dynamically inserted from the phone number list.

Because of Answering Machine Detection, a different message can be played when an answering machine or voicemail answers.
Hello, this is a message for Robert. This is Dr. Smith's office calling regarding your upcoming appointment on February 10th at 10:30am.

Yes! A human voice can be used. Keep in mind that this requires human voice recordings for the merge data fields. For example, if the day of the week is in the message, there needs to be a human voice recording for each day of the week.
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday
The setup takes a few more minutes, but it can be worth it to have an all-human voice message.
Thanks for all your help! I'll do this again for re-election! Thanks again!
