Where does the Alexa voice come from?
You might be shocked to discover that Alexa’s voice isn’t actually that of a person. Natural Language Processing, which breaks down speech into words, sounds, and concepts, was used instead.
When you ask Alexa a question, your voice is recorded and transferred over the internet to the Alexa Voice Service, hence the need for a stable Wi-Fi connection!
The audio is then converted to text, allowing a machine to assess what you said. Then, in a matter of milliseconds, the Alexa Voice Service delivers a command to your device, instructing Alexa on how to reply!
And that’s how to change Alexa Voice to Morgan Freeman or several celebs. Why stick to the default voice when so many more exciting options are available?!
