CereProc Launches Swedish TTS Voice
CereProc, in partnership with the Swedish Agency for Accessible Media (MTM), has released a Swedish text-to-speech voice named "Ylva."
MTM will use the voice primarily to produce a wide variety of talking books and newspapers for university students and people with accessibility needs. The new voice is also available to download from the CereProc website for personal and commercial use.
"We called for a collaboration with a TTS company where MTM could be part of the development process in terms of testing and quality assurance. The ability to control the voices via standard formats, such as SSML, is of immense importance to us, as well as the possibility to further collaborations to enhance the voices. CereProc did meet all these requirements," said Christina Tånnander from MTM.
