Acapela Group has launched Sharon, a new U.S. English voice, to its lineup of text-to-speech voices.

Based on improved methods and optimized linguistic processes, Sharon is part of a new wave of Acapela voices that are more natural, fluid, and intelligible. Sharon can handle a wide range of tasks, involving both short and long content. She is particularly suited to reading long texts.

"We are very excited about Sharon. Her skills confirm once again that in our quest to provide authentic voices we are moving resolutely in the right direction. Sharon embodies the same qualities as French Manon, who has been successfully performing audiobooks for the Association Valentin Haüy since her launch. We are looking forward to rolling out new voices in other languages. I am happy to already announce that the next one will be a new German voice, eagerly awaited by our customers and partners," said Lars-Erik Larsson, CEO of Acapela Group, in a statement.
