NeoSpeech, a text-to-speech (TTS) solution provider, announced today that Buddy Bird ToDo, an all-in-one organizer that reads aloud a user’s to-do list, features NeoSpeech TTS voices. The app is specifically designed for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

The app can read all to-do tasks, tasks due today, tasks due soon, overdue tasks, recurring tasks, or tasks assigned to user-specified lists. All tasks can also be organized into tabs or lists and sorted via filters, which makes it ideal for at-a-glance operation, or when focusing on a certain project. Users can even direct their devices to complete tasks by making calls, sending email or text messages, searching the Web, and more. They can also synchronize tasks with iCloud and the popular online service Toodledo.com.

In addition, Buddy Bird ToDo keeps drivers safe and compliant with hands-free laws, since no interaction with the iPhone or iPod Touch is required, and the app’s text-to-speech functionality works even when the device isn’t connected to the Internet.

"NeoSpeech text-to-speech software is a perfect fit for the elegant Buddy Bird ToDo task management service," said Christopher Moon, CEO of NeoSpeech, in a statement. "Our collaboration with Buddy Bird ToDo is an example of how NeoSpeech TTS is the essential tool for individuals who use smartphones for organizing their busy schedules."

BuddyBird Todo does not require signup or account creation or subscription fees to pay. And during a special limited time introductory period, it’s offered at 70 percent off via iTunes.
