Wizzard Software to Bring AT&T Natural Voices to Mac Soon

Wizzard Software on Thursday said that it will soon make AT&T Natural Voices, a human-like speech synthesis system, available to developers who want to implement the technology in their Mac applications. Currently available to Windows and Linux developers, Natural Voices offers plug-and-play support for English, French, German and Spanish, enabling developers to use the languages they need without having to employ a different engine for each one.

The company noted that the technology is currently in use in the accessibility, business automation, security and education markets.
