Much like in a play or a film, your script represents your story. Scripts can have many sections within them, and even sub-sections, giving you control and flexibility over audio timing.

Speech is text-to-speech produced by the API. This will have a voice associated with it as well - such as Joanna or Brian.

Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) is an XML-based markup language for speech synthesis applications. It is a recommendation of the W3C's voice browser working group. As different voice providers and voices support only parts of the SSML standard or extend it with special tags. AudioStack offers additional guardrails to make your script robust across different voice providers and voices.

Each Text-to-Speech voice or voice cloned voice (specific to each customer) has its own name.

Each user has their own organisation (this is often your company). In some specific cases (like if you're working for an agency) you'll have access to multiple organisations.

Sound Design
Sound design is the art and practice of creating sound tracks for a variety of needs. It involves specifying, acquiring or creating auditory elements using audio production techniques and tools. If you're not an expert don't worry; we have plenty of ready-to-go sound designs to choose from, suitable for a range of different use cases.

Sound Template
At AudioStack, we use sound templates to allow you to layer speech over sound design. Sound templates give your sound design a structure, that allows you to control how sounds are positioned relative to one another. This means you don't need any additional software, such as Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) to work with audio.

The application of various audio effects in order to make your audio sound like a professional production.
