実況? Is it something edible? In recent times, I’ve been watching a lot of VOICEROID実況 (じっきょう, jikkyou, literally “commentary”) videos from the rather famous (in Japan) video service ニコニコ動画, better known as “Nicovideo”. In this case, the commentary actually refers to games: they’re basically a Japanese version of the Let’s Play videos that are all around other places like YouTube.
The difference from “regular” videos lies in the “VOICEROID” term: this is a name of a TTS software developed by AH Software using an engine devised by a company called AI Inc.
