Acapela Group, the European leader in speech synthesis, is launching Voice as a Service (VaaS), an online, cost effective, very easy to use, straight talking solution that gives any content a natural voice and enables customers to profit from the power of the spoken word.
With Acapela VaaS, speech empowering an application is simple: connect to Acapela VaaS server, send the text and let VaaS do the talking. An appropriate connector (Flash or http) gives life to the application. 25 languages and up to 50 voices are available, 24/7, to make the cloud talk.
'Acapela VaaS is a major new step in Acapela's strategy, designed to offer a vocal solution for all needs. Acapela VaaS has already voice empowered prestigious campaigns and programs and actively promotes the use of speech in new fields, demonstrating how far Acapela speech solutions can help bring content to life. Vaas is also efficient - there are no integration or development issues, a wide range of languages and a large choice of voices' says Lars Erik Larsson, CEO of Acapela Group.
