First European Speech Group Unveils New Name: Acapela Group
BELGIUM, FRANCE and SWEDEN - Following the merger in January of Europe's speech players Babel Technologies, Elan Speech and Babel Infovox, the newly formed company has now unveiled its corporate name, Acapela Group. Totally focused on voice interface solutions, Acapela Group becomes the one-stop supplier hitherto missing from a somewhat over-orchestrated market. Hence the name.
An unprecedented consolidation in European speech technologies, Acapela is a strategic alliance of technologies that make sense together - Automatic Speech Recognition and Text-to-Speech - and the highly experienced staffs that made them possible. But more than that, Acapela Group is a response to what many industries and application developers the world over have long hoped for: a global resource of concentrated speech technology skills and talent in a human-dimensioned organization.
