New Canadian French TTS Voices from Loquendo

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

Speech recognition and text-to-speech (TTS) technology provider, Loquendo, has announced the latest voices in their family of TTS voices, Oliver and Charlotte.
Their latest addition is a bid to better serve their customers in the North American market and rounds out their number of offerings to 20 languages and 50 voices.
The new voices are Canadian French and offer the same expressive, emotional speech capabilities as other voices from Loqunedo.
Loquendo's TTS technology includes "expressive cues" that give an added level of emotion and expressiveness to the various voices. With the appropriate punctuation, a voice can, for example, be made to sound more lively and life-like.
Loquendo's TTS voices are available in both male and female voices and in number of additional languages including: U.S. and U.K. English, French, Castilian Spanish and Catalan, Mexican, Argentinean, Chilean, Brazilian, Italian, German, Dutch, Greek, Swedish, Mandarin Chinese and Polish.
Loquendo made headlines recently when their Spanish TTS Voice was utilized by Mexico's Credito Real in their newly powered telephony application to help them increase collection rates while also improving their overall customer experience.
Carlos, Loquendo's Spanish speaking TTS voice, also featuring expressive cues, provided the whole Latin-American Spanish sector with a voice to help guide them through the collections process more easily.
