Nuance Adds TTS to Document Scanning Program
Nuance Communications today introduced OmniPage Ultimate, the new release of its document conversion and scanning solution for Microsoft Windows. In addition to converting paper, PDF documents, and digital camera images into files users can edit, search, and share, users can now convert paper files into natural-sounding audio files.
OmniPage Ultimate now lets users take documents on the go with Nuance's advanced speech technology to convert documents to MP3 files that can be read aloud to users via desktop and mobile devices. The app also offers new file formatting for reading documents on smartphones and tablets with eBook applications that support the ePUB format.
"OmniPage Ultimate offers unparalleled productivity in how it transforms documents quickly and accurately, and then shares them in the most efficient format for any task," said Michael Rich, general manager and senior vice president of the Nuance Document Imaging Division, in a statement. "With business and personal technology becoming more integrated and demand for accessibility always increasing, there has never been a greater need to transform documents into new, dynamic formats without losing vital information."
The application is accessible in more than 100 languages. Upgrades from previous OmniPage version cost $199; new purchases start at $499 and come with volume discounts available through the Nuance Open License Program.
