Beyond Traditional Text-to-Speech

Bark also features language recognition. Simply input text, and the system will automatically determine the language. Using Bark is straightforward – input a line of text, and the system transforms it into incredibly lifelike human speech. For example, you can input an English text from Bark like “Hello, my name is Suno. And, uh — and I like pizza. [laughs]. But I also have other interests such as playing tic tac to,” and experience the result.

Bark is not limited to text-to-speech; it can also generate various types of audio. By adding musical notes before and after text commands, you can transform your text into a song. For instance, adding background music to “In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion barks tonight” creates an immersive musical experience.
