The Medical Learning Co. Chooses NeoSpeech TTS

NeoSpeech, a provider of speech technologies for hand-held, desktop and network/server applications, announced that the Medical Learning Company (MLC) has selected its Text-to-Speech product, VoiceText, for its SynPatient patient simulator.

MLC is a healthcare information technology provider, providing products and services to enhance learning in the medical industry.

"By selecting VoiceText, The Medical Learning Company highlighted the importance of natural-sounding, quality Text-to-Speech in their customers' learning experience," stated Lin Chase, CEO of NeoSpeech.

MLC has developed the SynPatient, a patent pending proprietary program that is a unique, dynamic and interactive patient simulator, which in its most advanced iteration can generate an unlimited number of virtual patients based on detailed models contained in a medical knowledge base. SynPatient provides realistic evolution, flexible control over the simulated passage of time, real-time image morphing, and continuous voice interaction in a rich multimedia environment featuring images, sounds, video, and voice.

To further develop SynPatient's capabilities, the company is working to enhance SynPatient's text-to-text responses with human-like, verbal answers to physicians' diagnostic queries. NeoSpeech's VoiceText makes SynPatient more realistic and engaging, improving physicians' understanding and learning.

"We needed a speech engine that could deliver life-like voices capable of expressing human emotions. After an extensive evaluation process that involved testing a broad range of speech engines, NeoSpeech's product stood alone. Additionally, their flexibility and cooperation demonstrated that NeoSpeech would be the ideal partner who could successfully collaborate with us and support our long-term needs," said Todd Graham, Vice President of Marketing for MLC.

NeoSpeech's VoiceText is the only product of its kind to offer the same high quality voices across all different footprints and across all major platforms. VoiceText generates natural-sounding voices from text input and offers the same text-to-speech solution across hand-held, desktop, laptop and network/server applications, while supporting a broad range of industry standard operating systems. Available in several languages, VoiceText can process any size or type of text, from reading test questions to complete news stories to personal e-mail, delivering the highest level of accuracy and quality.
