In Articulate Storyline 360, a new feature is introduced which is “Text-to-Speech”. This feature is helpful in two ways:

  1. To keep the project cost low, machine generated audio can be used. Just need to add the audio text or the Closed Captions, and machine generated audio is ready.
  2. In an eLearning project, the standard process to record the human voice is once the project is fully approved by the client. In the client review phase, if the course has to be presented to the client using machine audio then the audio has to be generated using another software and then import it in the course. Whereas in Articulate Storyline 360, “Text-to-Speech” takes care of generating machine audio.
