NeoSpeech Launches Voice Cloud Service for Text-to-Speech
NeoSpeech has launched its Voice Cloud Service, allowing users to access text-to-speech (TTS) software online.
The Voice Cloud Service is made up of two categories: On Demand, an online TTS platform for end users, and Web Service, an online TTS server that Web developers can use to build custom Web sites with TTS software.
Both TTS On-Demand and Web Services provide users with unlimited access to a full array of NeoSpeech's voices in 15 accents and seven languages, including U.S. and U.K. English, Mexican Spanish, Canadian French, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.
TTS On-Demand is designed for users who want to create audio files by simply typing text into NeoSpeech's Web site and pressing a button.
NeoSpeech's Web Services is a SOAP- and REST-capable, hosted TTS solution designed for Web developers who want to integrate TTS technology into their Web sites. Web Service's asynchronous architecture allows it to handle traffic spikes to ensure consistent performance while the use of industry-standard SSL encryption protects the confidentiality and security of all audio transmissions.
The Web Service also includes NeoSpeech's customizable dictionary. This allows developers to change the pronunciation, speech, and pitch of words using Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML). This means that users can ensure that every name, street or greeting is said exactly how they want it to be said, every time.
"We are excited about launching these new TTS solutions," said Devin Lee, the interim CEO of NeoSpeech, in a statement. "By eliminating the need to install software, the Voice Cloud Service provides universal access to high-quality, human-like voices without any hassle so that everyone can utilize TTS technology easily and quickly."
There are a range of applications for NeoSpeech's Voice Cloud Service, including audio publishing, education, entertainment, announcement systems, and telecommunications.
NeoSpeech integrated Bitcode support into its package to benefit developers and end users of text-to-speech applications.
