Natural Voices for OS X
Wizzard Software announced today that will soon be available for Mac. Named "Technology of the Year" by Frost & Sullivan, AT&T's Natural Voices product line is "widely considered to be one of the most human-sounding speech synthesis systems in the world." Wizzard says it will make this technology available to Apple application developers. Natural Voices has already "been licensed by Wizzard to a growing number of developers to be used in a variety of environments." Bruce Phifer said Natural Voices is currently "enjoying incredible popularity in the Windows and Linux environments." Wizzard did not specify when Natural Voices would become available to the public.
