NowSpeak caller anouncement for Bluetooth devices in 10 languages

April 2008

This month NowSpeak Technologies announced that its world leading TTS solution for Bluetooth devices now supports ten major languages. For devices that traditionally have only been able to give feedback to the user by flashing LED's or tones, the use of TTS to tell the user who is calling is a significant benefit. In addition to caller announcement NowSpeak TTS is able to speak device status such as "low battery, please recharge" and provide guidance for device setup.

A key feature of NowSpeak TTS solution is that it produces high quality speech with a small memory footprint. This means that a bluetooth device can have multiple languages and to support this NowSpeak provides the 10 languages in the following regional language packs: Americas, Western European, Eastern European, Asian and World.
