Text-to-Speech (TTS)


Text-to-Speech (TTS) is a type of assistive technology that reads digital text aloud. In the context of customer support and B2B SaaS, it’s often used to enhance accessibility, improve user experience, and provide voice-based responses or instructions to users. It can be used in various applications such as voice assistants, chatbots, and automated customer service systems.


TTS is important in customer support as it enhances accessibility for visually impaired users and those who prefer audio interaction. It also allows businesses to provide instant, automated support, reducing wait times and improving customer satisfaction. In B2B SaaS, it can enhance user experience by providing voice-based navigation or instructions, making the software more intuitive and easy to use.


A common example of TTS in customer support is an automated phone system that uses TTS to read out menu options or provide information to the caller. In a B2B SaaS context, a project management tool might use TTS to read out task descriptions or updates to help users stay informed without needing to read through text.

Best Practices

  1. Ensure the TTS voice is clear, natural, and easy to understand. 2. Use TTS judiciously to avoid overwhelming users with too much audio content. 3. Regularly test and update your TTS system to ensure it’s providing accurate and helpful information. 4. Consider user preferences and provide options to adjust the speed, volume, and other aspects of the TTS output.
