Over the past 10 days, Digital Shoreditch Festival 2013 has brought together top individuals and companies from the digital community in the UK, inviting them to come to East London - the firmly established tech hub - to share ideas, discuss challenges and celebrate some of the most exciting projects being created at the moment.
CereProc neighbours, and fellow Edinburgh speech tech startup, Speech Graphics, have put together a video demo featuring CereProc text to speech and Speech Graphics' super high-fidelity lip-sync. All CereProc TTS products (including the CereVoice Cloud) can output phonetic sequences and timing information, which means they can be used to power animated characters.
One of CereProc's core missions - through commercial and academic partnership, intensive research and development of our patented technologies - is to enable individuals from around the world to apply text to speech solutions in their own language to enhance everyday life. With this in mind, we're delighted to announce that the next language to receive the 'CereProc treatment' is....Dutch!

Improving an individual's quality of life is one of the most valuable applications of sophisticated text-to-speech (TTS) technology. Every individual is able to reap the benefits of intelligently applied TTS. Whether enabling a sufferer of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) to be able to gain further independence through improved access to public services, or indeed someone simply seeking ways to improve their productivity using their mobile device while studying or multitasking, multichannel text-to-speech offers a diverse range of useful applications.
There is a more sinister use of text-to-speech technology than the traditional IVR and accessibility applications - to alter what a person has actually said. Dangerous, huh?
There are two monkeys in a bath. One says "Ooh ooh ah ah ah!" The other says "If its too hot, put some cold in!"
But some emotions don't make a lot of noise. It's hard to hear pride. Caring is real faint - like a heartbeat. And pure love why, some days it's so quiet, you don't even know it's there.
