Do I need to review my audio?
You can rely on BeyondWords to deliver accurate text-to-speech because we use advanced AI voices and natural language processing algorithms.
As a result, most of our publishers use automatic publishing.
However, we cannot guarantee that your audio will be free of errors. There is also the chance of an issue at your end — for example, a typo in the source text. So, if you want to ensure that your audio sounds perfect, we recommend that you disable automatic publishing.
