OpenAI has introduced a new voice-cloning tool. It comes with a caveat: strict controls will be enforced until safeguards are established to mitigate the risks of audio manipulation aimed at deceiving listeners.[1]

Dubbed "Voice Engine," the tool has the capability to replicate an individual's speech patterns based on a mere 15-second audio snippet.

OpenAI emphasized its commitment to a cautious and methodical approach to rolling out the technology more widely, citing the inherent risks of synthetic voice misuse.

In a bid to mitigate potential misuse, OpenAI has imposed stringent guidelines on partners testing Voice Engine. These rules mandate explicit and informed consent from individuals whose voices are replicated, along with transparent disclosure to audiences regarding the synthetic nature of the voices they hear.
