How do I expand Frazier?

Frazier uses various interfaces to extend its own features. Here you can find a number of third-party providers that we have connected via our plugin system.


A central function of Frazier is the read-aloud function in the editor. We use different providers for this. Depending on the package and voice output requirements, different services are available:

Standard Voices

The so-called “standard” voices are available in all “authoring” packages. They are used to read the audio description in the editor. The quality is “OK”, but the focus is on getting the most accurate preview possible for later recording in the studio.

The following providers are used:

  • AWS Polly
  • Google Cloud Text-To-Speech
  • Microsoft Speech

Neural Voices

Neural voices are used to create text-to-speech audio descriptions. They sound much more natural than the standard voices and also have better audio quality when exported. Neural voices are available to all Production packages.

Again, the following providers are used:

  • AWS Polly
  • Google Cloud Text-To-Speech
  • Microsoft Speech

You can find more details in the Neural Voices chapter.

Custom Voices

If the existing selection of voices is not enough for you, you should take a look at ElevenLabs. They offer extensive options for generating new voices or even cloning your own voice. You can find details about our ElevenLabs Plugin in the next chapter.

Machine translation

Should you create an audio description in multiple languages? Or have you received a foreign language script as a template and should you translate it? To do this, we integrated DeepL into Frazier. Use the Translate Document function for a first draft, so you can then edit it further.

Automated Mix

In addition to the classic stereo mix, the Fraunhofer MPEG-H ProductionLib is available for generating ADM files.

Data transfer

Do you have ten mini-projects at once? Then exchanging data via SFTP helps.
