How to use Amazon Polly?
When you select the voiceover for a given language in the option of adding a background audio/voiceover
there will be an additional option: “Get audio from Amazon”
After clicking on this button, the CMS4VR System will connect to Amazon and upload the appropriate audio file to the MEDIA section. In order to add a background audio, click on and confirm using ‘Save’.
NOTE: efficiency and speed of Amazon Polly depends on the speed of your connection to the Amazon’s servers. In the case when Amazon Polly is not working properly for reasons beyond the control of the CMS4VR system, turn on the automatic voiceover instead:
