ElevenLabs creates the most realistic, versatile and contextually-aware AI voices. We're the leaders in voice technology with our cutting-edge research and products that enable our customers to generate content at scale.
We have deployed a platform for creators & publishers to turn their long text into audio with compelling and natural voices. Currently, we are expanding the capabilities of the platform to incorporate comprehensive generative voice control. This entails developing tools to convert videos and podcasts into speech, supporting multiple languages, while maintaining the unique characteristics of the speaker's voice, providing emotional control, and even creating entirely new character voices.
ElevenLabs was founded by two experienced engineers who previously worked at Google and Palantir, bringing their expertise from the world of big tech into a new frontier. We have secured venture capital funding and have recently concluded our successful Series-A round.
