Custom TTS voice models

Customers want their own individual voices.  It would be great if we could upload audio and text content to generate a custom TTS model for use by the customer's service instance.  This way we let the customer do the work involved in building the data needed for the model, and it will sound exactly how they want it to sound.

    We would have won the Speech Agent opportunity at Daimler in Feb if we’d have had this, so please pursue asap. This would be a game changer in the market.

    Credit Mutuel is a key client for IBM and Watson (as Ginni has mentioned herself several times recently).  We should do all we can to support this client who is embracing cognitive in many areas.

    This feature has been requested/demanded by Credit Mutuel. It seems that we might lose a big account by not having it.
