Text-To-Speech Market Dynamics
- Rising penetration of mobile devices/handheld devices
Mobile devices have evolved from voice-calling devices to more sophisticated personal computing devices that allow users to browse the internet, take photographs, language translation, navigation guidance, and manage entertainment and multimedia content. Text-to-speech technology is becoming more popular in everyday applications due to the growing demand for automation and convenience. Mobile devices, smartphones, portable devices, digital assistants, and other handheld devices use text-to-speech software. Text-to-speech devices can also eliminate the need for users to read lengthy user guides or manuals by providing verbal prompts and audio directions for operations. Many such smart device advancements are expected to increase the integration of text-to-speech technology into handheld devices.
- The increasing number of people suffering from visual impairments and learning disabilities
Text-to-speech technology can assist people with visual impairments and learning disabilities in a variety of ways. People with dyslexia or reading disabilities have a difficult time deciphering text. The letters may not make sense to them and thus remain unknown. Text-to-speech technology can help such people by converting their texts into an auditory format and making them easier to understand. Text comprehension and content comprehension are difficult for people with learning disabilities. As a result, their development and knowledge processing skills suffer. Text-to-speech technology will assist such people while also providing a growth opportunity in the text-to-speech market.
Voice recognition technology offers a low-cost and precise solution for identity verification. Integrating with various healthcare equipment and platforms is simple to provide secure authentication. Similarly, voice and speech recognition technologies allow doctors to convert their voice into text, which is then recorded in an advanced electronic health record system. A number of companies are currently working on developing voice-enabled devices for the healthcare industry. This, together with the increasing adoption of voice or speech-enabled EMRs, is expected to propel the healthcare industry to the forefront of the voice and speech recognition market in the coming years.
One of the most significant limitations of speech synthesis is that it lacks the complexities of natural speech, such as stress on a specific word and tone up/down. To produce correct pronunciation for synthesised speech, a large number of different rules and their exceptions are required. Some languages have unique prosody and pronunciation characteristics, making speech synthesis more difficult. The difficulty in achieving clear pronunciation and voice modification is expected to limit the use of text-to-speech technology in a variety of applications.

COVID-19 Impact on Text-to-speech Market
As schools and universities operate online, the COVID 19 has rapidly adopted text-to-speech technology. During the lockdown, many people who were unable to work due to office closures and those who did not have the option of working from home chose to take online crash courses and freelance tutoring. Furthermore, the strict instruction of the governing bodies to follow social distancing norms forced the industries to work with a minimum workforce, resulting in a decrease in the industries' production rate. As a result, all of these factors had a negative impact on the text-to-speech market. However, following the COVID-19 pandemic, the text-to-speech market will grow due to the diverse and innovative applications of text-to-speech.
