The Challenge: Enhancing Engagement and Accessibility in Distance Learning

Ocean County College (OCC) faced a significant challenge in gamifying its distance learning courses to improve student engagement and accessibility. With a vision to offer more dynamic and interactive online education, they encountered obstacles due to limited resources, a small instructional design team, and faculty members reluctant to record their own voices for course materials.

The Solution: Adoption of WellSaid Labs' Advanced Voiceover Technology

OCC's solution came through the discovery and integration of WellSaid Labs, an advanced voiceover technology capable of generating high-quality, lifelike voiceovers. This technology allowed the college to produce engaging course materials without requiring faculty voice recordings, thereby overcoming the reluctance of some instructors to record their own voices.

L&D Teams Love WellSaid

5 out of 5 stars.

“We wasted weeks combing through all of the text-to-speech services only to find that our first call to Well Said Labs should have been our last. Developing around their Restful API, we tailored WSL’s service to keep up with the high volume and consistent revising we need for our eLearning courses. Creating our longform narration for our courses used to take 60% of our course development time… with our API setup it’s now less than half that.”

“WellSaid’s API made it very easy to integrate this functionality into our Five9 IVA Studio platform where organizations build self-service applications for the voice channel. We chose WellSaid because of the quality of their voice avatars which offer audio that is almost indistinguishable from a human voice actor and because of their ability to help our customers create their own custom avatars.”
