Loquendo TTS powers Intel device.
Loquendo's text-to-speech (TTS) technology is being used in the new Intel Reader, a mobile, handheld device that reads printed text to assist those with dyslexia, learning disabilities, and vision problems. About the size of a paperback book, the Intel Reader converts printed text into digital text, and then reads it aloud using Loquendo's TTS. The text is viewed on the 4.3-inch LCD screen, where it can be enlarged according to the user's requirements. The device's menus are also enabled with Loquendo TTS. The user can select reading speed and pitch, and choose from a selection of male and female voices.
