WordWizard: Text To Speech
WordWizard’s text-to-speech (TTS) system
WordWizard uses text-to-speech technology (TTS) where a synthetic voice speaks out text on request. This confirms the user’s typed input and assists them in selecting words in the suggestions list. It is also used to speak out tutorial information.
TTS was robotic-sounding In the early days of its development and not widely used. However, the technology has recently improved dramatically. WordWizard users find it reassuring to have key information provided by a human-sounding voice with a distinct personality.
When ordering WordWizard either the British or North American voice needs to be specified. The range of voices will be extended in due course, such as regional UK accents.
Words Worldwide has an agreement with the manufacturer CereProc Limited to provide the TTS technology. CereProc was founded in 2005 and has a team of speech experts with a track record of academic and commercial success. The company creates TTS solutions for a wide variety of applications and they are available on any platform, from mobile and embedded devices to desktops and servers.
CereProc’s voices have character which are appropriate for a far wider range of applications than traditional TTS systems.
