Which Voices Can be Used Commercially?
We can only give you permission for commercial use for voices that their name ends with ** (ie - 2 stars). Use Google Chrome to get these voices. Other voices come from your OS - so you’re usually not allowed to use them (depends on contractual terms of the OS itself).

That’s all. Make sure you use original text and only use voices that are permitted, as noted above.
