Speech technologies provider Loquendo, has continued to add new languages and voices to their line of speech applications in a bid to allow customers to expand speech farther into new territories.
The latest addition to their family of TTS voices is Magnus, a Danish male voice for the Scandinavian market.
Loquendo (News - Alert) offers three languages for the Scandinavian market: Danish, Finnish and Swedish and said it will also add Norwegian to the line up later this year.
With Magnus, Loquendo now offers 6 voices for the Scandinavian market.
The company’s TTS speech synthesis solutions offes natural sounding voices than are able to read any kind of dynamic data and prompts and that are expressive with pronunciation accuracy, natural timbre and intonation so that they sound as lifelike as possible.
Using Loquendo TTS, developers can make use of tools like Voice Creator, so they can create personalized voices with just a few clicks of the mouse or make use of a User-Driven Unit Selection Tool, for smooth pronunciation and intonation, and so much more.
