PARAGON TOOLS SUPPORTS TEXT-TO-SPEECH FOR DIEBOLD ATMS.

Paragon Application Systems, has deployed ConfigBuilder 4.1, ATMulator 2.1, and FASTest 2.2-Paragon's flagship offerings for ATM configuration, simulation, and testing. ConfigBuilder will support testing of EMV (also known as chip card or Smart Card testing) for Diebold ATMs. In addition, the new releases will support alphanumeric states, GIF images, testing of Text- to-Speech (TTS) and multi-currency dispenses, and offer formatted message displays.

"As our business partners and clients develop support for leading-edge features, they rely on Paragon's tools to provide the means to implement and test these next-generation ATM offerings," says Kathy Cameron, Paragon's director of sales and marketing. "Institutions operating in the US need to meet the latest ADA guidelines. With Text-to-Speech in ATMulator plus ConfigBuilder, creating and testing audio support at ATMs becomes much easier. On the other hand, international clients require support for EMV (the Europay, MasterCard, Visa standard chip card) and cash/check accepting terminals, also known as bunch note acceptors (BNA)."

"For more than a decade, our customers have depended on Paragon Application Systems to provide enabling technology in the form of configuration, simulation, and testing tools to allow them to take advantage of the latest ATM features and get those features to market," says Cameron.
