Text-to-speech (TTS) technology, is gaining much attention in the marketplace for its ability to bring innovation and entirely new capabilities for various applications and solutions.
One of the most focused areas for speech recognition and TTS technology is the automotive industry. Adding speech to such things as navigation systems or other "in-car" components, make travel safer and more efficient and is a key driver in its rising popularity.
Loquendo, a speech technology provider, offers TTS Automotive solutions with navigation prompts, pre-recorded in 20 different languages, using the same voice, and offering TTS readout that is intelligent and seamless.
Honoring the company for the success and innovation of the offering, AVIOS-Speech TEK West recently recognized Loquendo TTS with a "Best Innovation in Text to Speech" award.
The multilingual solution offers manufacturers of GPS navigation devices and in-car telematics with a solution that features Mixed Language Support for the read out of street signs and points of interest or addresses, both foreign and domestic, and regardless of language.
"The solution can be tailored to fit any navigation device constraints by supporting the widest range of sampling rates and a rich bouquet of encoding bit rates," a news release noted.
The award was chosen by a committee appointed by the board of The American Voice Input Output Society (AVIOS).
Loquendo made news recently when they announced interoperability with PIKA Technologies (News - Alert) Digital T1/E1 PrimeNet MM boards, via Paraxip PSTN-to-SIP Gateway (News - Alert) software.
