How much audio can I create?
Each BeyondWords plan comes with a character limit. This determines how many characters (including letters, symbols, and spaces) you can convert into audio.
Does it matter how many times my audio is played?
Once an audio is processed, it can be played any number of times. You will not be charged based on the number of listens.
Will your players slow down my website?
Our audio players should not slow down your website. We’ve designed BeyondWords to minimize any effect on latency. The JavaScript player is lightweight and embedded via an iFrame, which means that it only loads after all other page content has loaded. We’re also the only text-to-speech service that transcodes audio for HLS (HTTP Live Streaming), which splits audio into 15-second segments at different bit rates to ensure frictionless listening.
Can I try BeyondWords out for free?
Yes, we offer a Pilot plan that allows you to test out the platform.

Can I use BeyondWords for commercial purposes?
Yes, you can use BeyondWords to process audio for any purpose, as long as you are in accordance with our terms and privacy policy.
