CeBIT Visitors Impressed By Text To Speech Potential

The stand of IVO Software, the manufacturer of one of the best text to speech systems in the world, was among those attracting the largest numbers of visitors at this year’s CeBIT. The opportunity to enter texts and listen to IVONA reading them out aroused the biggest interest.

CeBIT is one of the most prestigious IT events in the world, organized in Hannover, Germany. This year it took place from 4 to 9 March. IVO Software’s stand was in the “future parc” which enjoyed an enormous popularity among the visitors. The most frequently tested voice was that of Jennifer – an American English voice generated by the text to speech system IVONA.

“People testing our text to speech system were hugely impressed by the natural sound of the speech and the intonation of questions. IVO’s stand was also frequently visited by the representatives of other companies present at CeBIT, who showed vivid interest in IVONA’s potential” – says Lukasz Osowski, the President of IVO Software.

At the fair IVO presented its IVONA text to speech system and products based on it: IVONA Telecom – for telecommunications applications such as Call Center or for IVR systems; IVONA SDK – for hardware and software manufacturers who want to implement the text to speech system in their products (e.g. mobile devices, GPS, etc.); IVONA Professional – for enterprises, e.g. allowing to prepare text to speech voice overs (for applications such as presentations, audiobooks, announcement systems, voice prompts in elevators) or for converting texts into audio files; IVONA Desktop – for individual users and for small business (SOHO).

“Anybody who wants to test IVONA and find out more about its applications should visit our new website – www.ivona.com. We also invite private computer users to visit www.expressivo.com – a website presenting software reading books, documents, news and notices with IVONA’s natural human voices” – encourages Mr. Osowski.

The speech generation technology developed by IVO Software is regarded as one of the best in the world. This is confirmed by the numerous honors and awards it has won. IVONA’s voice quality was also recognized at the prestigious international Blizzard Challenge. Two times in a row, in 2006 and 2007, it was considered one of the closest to a natural voice. IVO Software was established in 2001 and since then it has been involved only in creation and development of speech synthesis products.
