CereProc has been working in speech synthesis and modification for many years and we are pleased to see this has started to become a more mainstream interest. Adobe, with their demo of VoCo highlighted the power and potential dangers of using speech synthesis to edit speech. Our CSO, Dr Matthew Aylett, was recently interviewed by Radiolab on how this technology could be used to create fake news.

10/07/2017 Voice for KFC

Colonel Sanders is now cheerfully greeting customers and taking orders at a KFC drive-thru – albeit in a robot format. KFC released the robot ‘chicken expert’ dubbed H.A.R.L.A.N.D.

26/05/2017 Next generation speech synthesis super star

Conall Major (12) of Edinburgh visited CereProc office last week to learn all about speech synthesis. He worked with CereProc’s CSO Dr Matthew Aylett and had some fun playing around with our novelty Donald and Hillary voices.

Scotland, the country best known for the scenic Highlands, whisky and deep-fried Mars bars… and impossible to pronounce place names.

23/02/2017 Why text to speech is an excellent tool for writers

Lisa Leoni discusses in her latest blog post how text to speech helps her work more efficiently and improve her writing. For her new novel set in Scotland, CereProc’s Stuart is the best voice for the job.

“I discovered, and subsequently fell in love with, Scottish Stuart on Cereporc.  I’m writing contemporary romance set in Scotland with a Scottish hero and I wanted a level of authenticity in my text-to-speech experiences. *cough* Or something like that. After purchasing the voice it was super easy to install it to my machine.”

The way we interact with technology is changing - through mobile devices, Siri -like personal assistants, robotics, gaming, wearable technology and more - and synthetic speech is an integral part of that. Text to speech voices need to not only be good enough to deliver a seamless communication experience through conversational interfaces but also delight the user!
