With an aim to enhance the experience for Indian customers, the addition of Hindi language support will help Amazon reach out to the 500 million Hindi speaking people worldwide.

Using advanced deep learning technologies to synthesize speech that sounds like a human voice, Amazon Polly provides dozens of languages and a wide selection of natural-sounding male and female voices.
