Founded in 1991, ScanDis is a leading accessibility software developer and solutions supplier based in Denmark. ScanDis’ partnership with Acapela started in 1998 when ScanDis decided to integrate Acapela’s market leading high quality text-to-speech in all its applications.
“Our know-how in the area of learning disabilities and state-of-the-art software products, combined with Acapela’s high quality voices and its continuous development of new voices and languages, have been the key elements of our successful partnership. We are very enthusiastic about reinforcing our long term partnership with Acapela, and look forward to further developing this strong relationship” said Kim Nørkjær, co-founder of ScanDis.

Acapela’s text-to-speech adds the powerful and natural dimension of voice to ScanDis applications to give immediate speech feedback.

“The partnership with a high profile specialist such as ScanDis fully contributes to achieving an essential mission for our company which aims, leaning upon 20 years of experience, to improve accessibility for everyone, helping thousands of users in their daily life” said Lars-Erik Larsson, Acapela Group CEO.
