Since their launch 7 years ago, Chromebooks are increasingly being adopted in schools to boost learning capabilities. As the text-to-speech voice interface is reinventing the way we all engage with devices, Acapela voices are helping to broaden the native voice offering on Chromebooks with another 30 languages and over 100 voices. The Acapela portfolio for Chromebooks includes authentic children voices as well as adult ones so that students can choose according to their age group and preferences, to feel fully comfortable with the voice they learn with.
Engage with High quality voices in 30 languages
Talking apps are contributing to change the way language, information and words can be learnt and understood. Acapela voices permit students to create an engaging and comfortable interactive environment, even more with touch screen devices, thus enhancing their learning abilities.
Text-to-speech specifically helps individuals that read slowly or with difficulty, people who want feedback when writing or help with spotting errors when proof-reading, those who suffer visual stress when reading text on paper or on a screen or want to simultaneously see and hear. Immediate audio feedback improves word recognition, increases the ability to pay attention and remember information and helps students to recognize and fix errors in their own writing. The wide range of languages covered opens up language learning opportunities.

Our expertise, the ongoing ground-breaking innovations in the voice area based on deep learning and our capability to create voices for everyone put us in an optimal position to create original, dynamic solutions for all end users of all ages, from kids to seniors and answer to all Chromebooks users. We look forward to the community feedback’, says Nicolas Mazars, Acapela Inclusive Business Unit Manager.
Acapela’s unique children voice portfolio gives pupils the opportunity to hear their work read back to them in a friendly, age-appropriate voice that they can identify with. This realistic speech feedback encourages them to actively review and self-correct their work.
