In creating interactive digital content including characters, text-to-speech technology is a promising option to flexibly respond to arbitrary user input. We propose a method of applying text-to-speech technology to generate speech in a fictional language that the user has never heard before. We will share with attendee how this method can generate a pronunciation language for a fictional language that fits the worldview and creates an immersive experience, as if the user is listening to the language spoken in that world. We will introduce the simple but effective approach to synthesis fictional language speech, and explain the possible application in games.


Attendees will learn how to expand the application of machine-learning-based text-to-speech technologies to enrich characters with their own voice and language. Attendees will also learn how to apply this technology to game production.

Intended Audience

Anyone interested in the application of text-to-speech technology to enable new experiences as if the characters in a game were speaking in their own unique language rooted in their world.
