ZURICH - SVOX, a provider of text-to-speech (TTS) software, and Voxpilot, the pan-European outsourced VoiceXML channel, have partnered to consolidate and strengthen both companies' presence on the European market by delivering the benefits of SVOX's TTS engine to Voxpilot's partners and clients. Voxpilot has integrated SVOX's natural sounding TTS (Text-to-Speech) to enable services such as e-mail reading, automatic directory assistance and automated commerce. The combined offering was demonstrated at this year's Orbit, which took place in Basel from 24 to 27 September 2002. SVOX's TTS powered a unified messaging solution for mobile employees on Voxpilot's outsourced VoiceXML Gateway. Visitors were able to experience how e-mails, SMS, tasks and a calendar can be retrieved from any phone, anywhere, by using the human voice. SVOX's TTS engine features an architecture that is unique, enabling different languages to be spoken with the same voice in one single sentence. Dr. Jonathan Alcantara, CEO of Voxpilot, said: "The integration of SVOX's TTS engine makes it possible for us to offer TTS that not only sounds great and allows corporate branding - it also complements our own pan-European offering through its cutting-edge technology." Alex Fries, Chief Marketing Officer of SVOX, suggested: "Voxpilot offers a very attractive solution for Telecom operators and enterprises to quickly deploy voice applications. A joint offering with SVOX's customizable Text-to-Speech will allow customers to scale their speech applications seamlessly and without any constraints."
