March 28, 2008 - PRLog -- Loquendo, leading speech technology provider worldwide, releases an upgraded version of Annika, Loquendo’s female Swedish voice. In porting Annika to Loquendo TTS 7 she now benefits from improved pronunciation accuracy and has been enriched with ‘Expressive Cues’ for conveying heightened expressivity and an increased emotional range.

The award winning Loquendo TTS 7 also offers Mixed Language support, an Audio Mixer for adding synchronised music or sound effects, and an extensive menu of prosodic features for adjusting the speaking rate, timbre and pitch of a voice. Using Voice Creator, integrators can even modify any existing Loquendo voice to create their own customized personas to better suit corporate profile and enable differentiation from competitors.

Like all other Loquendo voices, Annika is available for all platforms, from telephony servers to desktop PCs and embedded devices.

Annika will be joined by a male Swedish voice in the summer, followed by the release of the Finnish and Danish languages towards the end of 2008, giving Loquendo’s clients increased leverage in the thriving Scandinavian markets and extending the company’s reach across Europe and the world.

Currently available languages include: U.S. and U.K. English, Swedish, German, Dutch, French, American Spanish, Mexican, Chilean and Argentinian Spanish, Castilian, Catalan, Valencian, Galician, Brazilian, Portuguese, Italian, Esperanto, Greek, Mandarin Chinese, Turkish, Canadian French and Polish in both male and female voices, with more under development all the time.
