From the early days of Amazon, Machine learning (ML) has played a critical role in the value we bring to our customers. Around 20 years ago, we used machine learning in our recommendation engine to generate personalized recommendations for our customers. Today, there are thousands of machine learning scientists and developers applying machine learning in various places, from recommendations to fraud detection, from inventory levels to book classification to abusive review detection. There are many more application areas where we use ML extensively: search, autonomous drones, robotics in fulfillment centers, text processing and speech recognition (such as in Alexa) etc.
The text language must match the selected voice language: Mixing language (English text with a Spanish male voice) does not produce valid results. The synthesized audio is streamed to the client as it is being produced, using the HTTP chunked encoding. The audio is returned in mp3 format which can be played using VLC and Audacity players.
