WordWizard: Text To Speech
WordWizard’s text-to-speech (TTS) system
WordWizard uses text-to-speech technology to provide the user with spoken feedback to confirm typed input and to assist in selecting words in the results table.
TTS comprises a mechanism whereby text available within a computer program is sent to a special program to activate a synthetic voice to speak out the text.
Historically, TTS output was distinctly robotic-sounding and not widely used. In recent years the technology has improved dramatically and allows programs such as WordWizard to benefit from the introduction of a feature which most users will find immensely valuable.
WordWizard’s TTS technology is provided under an agreement between Words Worldwide and the manufacturer, CereProc. British and North American voices are available and the required option needs to be specified when ordering the product. It is planned to extend the range of voices in due course to include, for instance, regional UK accents.
CereProc was founded in 2005 and creates text-to-speech solutions for any type of application. Its core product, CereVoice, is available on any platform, from mobile and embedded devices to desktops and servers.
CereProc has assembled a leading team of speech experts with a track record of academic and commercial success.
CereProc’s voices have character, making them appropriate for a far wider range of applications than traditional text-to-speech systems. Its voices sound engaging and assist in the effectiveness of WordWizard’s comprehensive tutorial system.
