Kirusa and Acapela Group Expand Partnership to Speech-enable Multimodal Solutions
Kirusa and Acapela Group have signed a strategic reseller agreement reinforcing the partnership set up between the two companies in 2003.
Acapela text-to-speech will voice-enable Kirusa Multimodal Solution (KMS-IPV), which enables simultaneous multimodality on smart devices (based on Java, Symbian, MS Smartphone, Brew, PalmOS and PocketPC). With KMS-IPV, users have access to all the standard (visual) input and output mechanisms available on their mobile devices augmented with voice input, voice output and voice recording. The KMS-IPV can be used by ISV's to create multimodal solutions, such as the Volkswagen application, developed by 8hertz technologies.
Acapela text-to-speech will also enable Kirusa Voice SMS (KV.SMS) to allow mobile users to reply to SMS text messages by voice, to send an SMS message by voice, and to receive SMS messages with voice content, on all mobile devices, and on all wireless networks.
Acapela speech-enables devices in 22 languages and up to 50 voices.
