GWrite, a text processor for journalists, makeup editors or press correspondents used by many newsrooms, has been given a voice by Acapela's speech synthesis to proof read journalistic texts out loud.
GWrite eases copy flow in a newsroom and enables journalists to produce texts of a high quality level, both in content and structure, before they are sent to be edited and added to the layout.
Listen to write differently.
Already validated by the market and taken on by many press offices including Groupe Marie Claire, M6/Citato group, France-Antilles, Agra Presse or Centre Presse, GWrite has added Acapela's High Quality speech synthesis to its latest version, to enable audio proofreading. A new, efficient and autonomous way to check the flow of the text, correct repetitions, hunt down typos or clumsy formulas and last but not least evaluate the pertinency of an article.
The audio proofreading is provided by Acapela's synthesis which can read any text with extremely natural and pleasant voices, respecting punctuation and breath groups to fully relay the meaning of the contents.
"Acapela's text to speech is an undeniable bonus for GWrite. It's a very popular function with our users, and it gives us that extra edge on the market, giving GWrite a strong innovative quality, it's real added value." says Benoit Widemann, developer of GWrite. "Adding this function was reasonably easy and Acapela provided fast and efficient support during development. We are extremely satisfied with this collaboration."
GWrite includes all modern editing functions (drag-drop, rectangular or multiple selection, integration of system services such as abstracts or spell checking) while keeping its own specificities (normalization of small print, integration of professional services such as ProLexis) and remains above all easy to use.
The XML format of the resulting documents simplifies its integration in a multi-media industrial process, such as a semi-automatic text processing system ending in both print and web formats.
GWrite is available in French and has recently been released in English. The text to speech function is, for now, only available in French.
