IVONA\'s Voices On YouTube

IVO Software - the manufacturer of IVONA TTS, one of the best text-to-speech systems in the world, has begun a global viral-video campaign promoting IVONA TTS.

For the purposes of the campaign IVO has prepared a short, 42 seconds long video which has already won 11 honors in the YouTube Science & Technology category. In this video IVONA TTS introduces itself to the world at the same time encouraging a viewer to test it himself or herself. This is accompanied by human faces morphing thanks to the latest 3D graphics technology, speaking with IVONA's voices. These voices are indistinguishable from a natural one.

Everyone interested can try out IVONA TTS on IVO Software's recently created new website: www.ivona.com. You just enter any text in the appropriate window and choose the voice to read it out. Currently four voices are available (one male and three female) speaking English, Polish and Romanian. You can send the voice message you have generated to your friends via email or save it as an MP3 file. You can also publish it on the Web (e.g. on a blog) or play it on an iPod or any other portable MP3 player.

"IVONA's virtual voices may be used by creative filmmakers. Each day a number of videos with IVONA -generated voice overs are placed on the YouTube" - suggests Lukasz Osowski, President of IVO Software.

The speech generation technology developed by IVO Software is regarded as one of the best in the world. This is confirmed by the numerous honors and awards it has won. IVONA's voice quality was also recognized at the prestigious international Blizzard Challenge. Two times in a row, in 2006 and 2007, it was considered one of the closest to a natural voice. IVO Software was established in 2001 and since then it has been involved only in creation and development of speech synthesis products.
