It’s the artificial production of human speech. The computer system used to achieve this is called a speech engine.
Acapela Text To Speech (TTS/Speech synthesis) transforms any text into speech in real time. It literally reads out loud any written information with a smooth and natural sounding voice. The automatic intonation reflects the meaning of the text, with respect to pauses, breath groups, punctuation and context.
The most important qualities of a speech synthesis system are naturalness and intelligibility + expressiveness.
DNN (Deep Neural Networks)
A deep neural network (DNN) is an artificial neural network (ANN) with multiple hidden layers between the input and output layers. DNNs can model complex non-linear relationships. We use them in Text-to-Speech to learn the relationship between a set of input texts and their acoustic realizations by different speakers.
Neural networks are a set of algorithms, modelled loosely after the human brain, that are designed to recognize patterns. They interpret sensory data through a kind of machine perception, labelling or clustering raw input. The patterns they recognize are numerical, contained in vectors, into which all real-world data, be it images, sound, text or time series, must be translated.
Neural Networks have revolutionized artificial vision and automatic speech recognition. This machine learning revolution is holding its promises as it enters the Text to Speech arena. Acapela Group is actively working on Deep Neural Networks. With Acapela DNN, we create a voice using a limited amount of existing or new speech recordings.
Basically, anywhere where voice makes sense.
Historically, voice solutions were initially developed to allow people suffering from visual impairments to access written information. They are now a standard component in applications and services and the new interface revolution with the voice-first.
We provide companies with digital voice solutions that are extensively used by everyone, changing the way we access content and information in our daily lives.
AAC solutions (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) allow users with impairments or restrictions related to the production or comprehension of spoken or written language to live and communicate with their environments with more autonomy. Acapela voices enrich AAC solutions and communicators turning any written words into spoken messages.
Speech solutions help people with dyslexia and cognitive impairments to accomplish daily life tasks, assisting them in communication, education, work or recreational activities. Speech support helps end users to operate with more autonomy and with increased self-confidence using simple and user-friendly interfaces.
