AI generated summary: The author tested OpenAI's Text-To-Speech model and found that it performs well in English and decently in German, but it is currently expensive and they recommend waiting for improvements and cost reductions.

I quickly played with OpenAI’s new Text-To-Speech model to check if it’s an alternative to Google’s API. And wow! English is fantastic and even German is not bad. Just some syllables in German have a weird English accent. But even then, it’s still good. But sadly, it’s also a bit costly. Let’s wait a few months until it gets cheaper and better, and you can enjoy my blog’s “Read aloud” feature even more. 😉
