CereProc offers a range of voices in many accents. We can create amazing new voices quickly due to our innovative voice creation system. Many of our voices are built exclusively for specific customers and applications. The samples below demonstrate CereProc's non-exclusive range of voices.
At CereProc we like to put our voices through their paces. So rather than the standard "hello my name is..." samples we have chosen material that allows their individual personalities to shine through.
CereProc is based in Edinburgh, Scotland and we are very proud of our Scottish voices. The Scottish accent has achieved the highest level of acceptability across a range of accredited surveys. This is one reason Scotland has long been the location of choice for contact centre operations.
The Loch Ness Monster is an alleged creature purportedly inhabiting Loch Ness in Scotland. Popular interest and belief in the animal has fluctuated since it was brought to the world's attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is largely anecdotal, with minimal and much disputed photographic material and sonar readings.
The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a modern day myth, and explains sightings as a mix of hoaxes and wishful thinking. Despite this, it remains one of the most famous examples of cryptozoology. The legendary monster has been affectionately referred to, by the diminutive, Nessie, since the 1950s.

"Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silvery Tay!
With your numerous arches and pillars in so grand array.
And your central girders, which seem to the eye,
To be almost towering to the sky.
The greatest wonder of the day,
And a great beautification to the River Tay,
Most beautiful to be seen,
Near by Dundee and the Magdalen Green."
From The Railway Bridge of the Silvery Tay, by William Topaz McGonagall.
Southern British English Voices
Labour is blossoming or dancing where
The body is not bruised to pleasure soul.
Nor beauty born out of its own despair,
Nor blear-eyed wisdom out of midnight oil.
O chestnut-tree, great-rooted blossomer,
Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?
O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,
How can we know the dancer from the dance?
From Among School Children, by William Butler Yeats
CereProc can also have some fun with voices you may be familiar with. Even with limited, low quality data, we can build recogniseable voices. Try out our Bush-o-Matic.
CereProc, in partnership with Barcelona Media, has developed a bi-lingual version of the CereVoice designer speech synthesis system. This new variant of CereVoice is able to produce both Catalan and Castilian speech output and will be marketed in Spain by Barcelona Media.

In 2008, CereProc is proud to announce their Japanese voice. In line with all CereVoice voices, it is highly intelligible and expressive, and can even output emotional speech. Below are some voice samples for a glimpse of our ongoing development.
(Hello, I'm the new Japanese voice from CereProc. I can read out Japanese text, and even speak emotionally.)
悲しくなってきました ー スコットランドの冬は天気が悪くて、雨が降って、暗くて、憂鬱なんです。
(I'm getting sad... The weather of Scotland in winter is really bad, dark, rainy and depressing.)
今度はちょっとご機嫌斜め ー イギリス人は、ときどきとても失礼でイライラします。
(I'm now a bit cross... Sometimes the British can be very rude and annoying!)
次は陽気に ー エジンバラは町がきれいだし、ここに住むのは大好き。
(Now I'm getting cheerful. Edinburgh is a beautiful city and I love living here.)
(I also can speak in English. Besides my voice, CereVoice has a wide selection of English and Spanish voices.)
