A comparison of human and machine-generated voice

Abstract

This study investigates the influence of a virtual human (VH) with recorded human voice vs VH with a machine-generated voice (text-to-speech) on building trust and working alliance. We measured the co-presence perception to understand the impact of VH's perception on building the human-VH relationship. The results revealed no differences between the two types of voices on co-presence perception, trust or working alliance.
