TextParrot at BETT

Acapela Group has announced that it is exhibiting TextParrot 1.0, a new application from AssistiveWare designed for Mac users that converts any written text into speech, at the BETT educational information and communications technologies (ICT) event. The software transforms any type of information in real-time just as the human voice can, according to the company, and the files are supported by Apple's iTunes software as well as its iPod portable players. The company says it will add other languages in the coming months. TextParrot requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, with single-user licenses available for $40.

TextParrot 1.0 serves as a multilingual speech solution for Mac OS X that allows users to listen to documents with Acapela's natural sounding voices, supporting the creation of personal podcasts or audio books by exporting to iPod-ready iTunes tracks. The software is designed to include natural sounding voices in U.S. English, U.K. English, French, German, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Flemish, Spanish, Portuguese, Norwegian, and Swedish.
