Accoona and Acapela Group Launch "Talking Search Bar"

MONS, Belgium and JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Accoona Corp., an artificial intelligence-based online search engine, and Acapela Group launched text-to-speech technology that will enable online users to highlight English-language text on the Internet to be read aloud in English. 

Accoona Talking Search Bar will read any written information out loud with an Acapela voice. Text-to-speech technology converts written text into speech.

The China Daily Information Company, an English-language Web and media destination in China, separately launched the technology for Chinese Internet users through its exclusive partnership with Accoona.

Accoona's Talking Search Bar provides a voice, combining search technology with a text-to-speech feature.  The technology can convert any Web page text into speech.  Users select the content they want to read - from headlines and news articles to weather reports and stock quotes - and the Talking Search Bar's text-to-speech technology will transform it.  After installing the Talking Search Bar, users choose between a male or female voice that will read highlighted text, complete with proper inflection points.
