Get Your Medium Stories Narrated by the Best Text to Speech Technology

What is Google WaveNet?

Google WaveNet is an advanced Text to Speech technology provided by Google which is arguably the most natural sounding computer voice we have ever heard.

The other best voice is from their Deep Mind project called Tacotron, which is so indistinguishable from human speech that Google have challenged to identify if it’s human or machine.

Ever since Google showcased their early demos, we have been eagerly waiting for Google WaveNet to release.

Today, we are extremely excited to announce that we have integrated all of Google WaveNet’s voices into and made them available for anyone who writes on Medium!

What this means is that if you write on Medium, you can now use this advanced technology to create the most natural sounding Audio Narrations of your Medium Stories and make them available to your readers to listen.

And with’s one-click ‘Publish with Audio’, you can have an Audio Narration created and embedded on your Medium Story within seconds!
