Voices.com, an industry-leading website that connects businesses with professional voice talent, has released an API that provides access to its database of more than 125,000 voice-over professionals. The API allows businesses to integrate on-demand Voices.com talent directly into a corporate website. The API enables individually set pricing and greatly reduces time to market for voice-over applications. The Voices.com API moves the industry another step closer to a fully automated creative process.
"Opening up our innovative business services translates to empowering other companies to create amazing work through the Voices.com API. We're excited to see the innovation that results from this," David Ciccarelli, Voices.com's CEO and co-founder, said in a press release.
As a voice-over industry leader, Voices.com can boast of a customer list that includes some of the world's most successful brands (NBC, ABC, PBS, Discovery Channel and many more). The new API strategy will help Voices.com better engage its existing client base and open up its ability to reach additional customers. Voices.com estimates that the API will reduce time to market for voice applications to as little as 48 hours.
To use the Voices.com API, developers need access to an API key. Those interested can request a key directly from Voices.com through its Developer Program. Data available via the API includes available jobs and talents. For sample code and detailed API information, check out the API docs.
Voices.com hosted a hackathon at its offices to launch the API. The hackathon included developers, business analysts and designers who created new, innovative use cases for voice-over services. The hackathon allowed Voices.com to understand future potential for its services and where it might market and improve the service. For more information, visit the API site.
