Hanover, 9-15 March, 2006 Acapela Group, the number one supplier of speech technologies in Europe, will be present as usual at CEBIT to introduce a range of important innovations aimed at strengthening its presence on the German market.
This particularly dynamic and demanding market is a major objective for Acapela in 2006. With its new male voice synthesis called 'Klaus' and the brand new version of its counterpart, 'Sarah', Acapela's high quality, competitive offer makes it possible to deploy wide ranging, value added services in the telecom, mobility, automobile and accessibility sectors.
These new, high quality Germanic tones complete the widest ranging European portfolio: 23 languages and 50 voices which include the latest French voice (Bruno), the Portuguese voice (Celia), and the Swedish voice (Erik).
With the launch of the new versions of Acapela Multimedia for Windows and Mac, Acapela Telecom for Windows and Linux and Acapela Mobility for WinCe and Linux, Acapela allows developers to integrate up to the minute speech technology in all their applications.
Virtual Speaker, its desktop vocalisation solution, has also received a new look with an even more intuitive interface and more advanced tools which offer a superior, high-performance virtual recording studio.
Infovox Desktop, the vocal interface which was developed by Acapela to allow visually-impaired people to gain access to written information using a screen reader or other accessibility applications, is also equipped with the latest brand new languages and voices.
Acapela's new product versions integrate the new, high quality voices mentioned above as well as the latest R&D developments in areas such as phonetics, intonation and prosody improvements, pre-processing, lip synchronisation, better response time, unified architecture, enrichment of vocal database, etc.
