TTS-1 and TTS-1-HD in Hebrew has an American accent

I am trying to create an application with TTS-1 in the Hebrew language, but unfortunately the accent is not completely Israeli, but an American accent creeps into it. Is there a chance this will be fixed? This happens in all six voices.

Hi and welcome to the Developer Forum!

With time, I’m sure this will get better, for now there is limited training data and it’s still an early beta. I’m actually impressed it’s able to do it at all, even with an accent! It still actually boggles my mind any of this works, it’s akin to magic.


Other languages was one of the “emergent behaviors” they noticed - teaching it English led to understanding of other languages… I think I remember it from a GPT-3 or GPT-4 paper?
