Freelance marketplace Fiverr has launched a feature that lets voiceover artists provide artificial intelligence-generated auditions for roles without having to read from a script.
Through AI Auditions, users can train the Voice Auditions engine, following which customers can go on Fiverr’s marketplace and “sample” the artist’s voice with no contact or actual audition required. The customer inputs some lines from their script into a text box on the artist’s Fiverr profile, which the AI reads aloud in the artist’s voice.
“At Fiverr, we fundamentally believe that artificial intelligence needs to be implemented in a way that will support and enhance human capabilities and knowledge. The future of work is one where AI supports people and allows them to do more with less effort,” said creative verticals group manager Yoav Hornung.
He added that the new tool will allow voiceover artists to focus on paid work rather than spend time auditioning for roles they have not secured.
In its beta phase, AI Auditions will be made available to a small group of voiceover artists on the Fiverr platform, and will subsequently be rolled out more widely.
Fiverr was established in 2010 by Micha Kaufman and Shai Wininger. With headquarters in Tel Aviv, the company went on to open additional offices Berlin, London, Miami, New York City, Phoenix and San Francisco.
Some 4 million customers worldwide have worked with freelancers on Fiverr in the past year.
Globally, the platform competes with freelancer sites such as Freelancer, Upwork and Dribbble.
