Silent Communication Releases TalkinSilent
Silent Communication Ltd released TalkinSilent, an application that enables you to answer the phone and respond to the caller by selecting and playing preset responses one at a time. You can select responses you have previously recorded in your own voice, or choose those spoken by a customizable male or female voice in the application. When you need to respond with a statement that is not pre-recorded, you can type in the response and a text-to-speech translator sends it as speech to the caller. In this way, you can communicate with callers who do not have text chat capabilities, and they will hear everything as speech. If the caller does have text chat capabilities, then the application also lets you invite the caller to a text chat.
The application also gives speech-impaired consumers the ability to use a mobile phone in their daily lives. Silent Communication has been working with the International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication to explore the benefits of TalkinSilent for people who have difficulty speaking or cannot use their voices at all.
The application is available for most of the European languages. There are also versions for Arabic and Russian, and the application will soon be available for both Mandarin and Cantonese versions of Chinese. The application runs on a variety of S60 devices, such as Nokia N92, Nokia N80, Nokia N71, Nokia E70, Nokia E61, Nokia E60, and Nokia 3250 XpressMusic. Cellcom, an Israeli mobile operator, is offering the application for every new Nokia S60 device it sells.
