The marketing of speech technology products is poised to grow at a robust rate. This is evident in the speed with which the market is generating new and improved products. The present article discusses Fonix Corporation’s latest marketing effort. Through its FonixTalk TTS 6.0 software, the company promises an improved female voice in 2008.

Casio Computer Co., Ltd., Japan’s top-notch electronics company, has lined up 20 new electronic dictionary models for 2008 that will include FonixTalk TTS 6.0 software technology. Fonix Speech, Inc., a subsidiary of the Fonix Corporation, is supplying the latest software. Apparently, the company has a per unit royalty agreement with Casio.

FonixTalk TTS 6.0 Promises Voice Clarity

According to John Shepherd, sales director for Fonix Speech, Inc., Casio’s new dictionary will deliver a “much improved, more natural sounding female voice in 2008.” Shepherd says that the company has worked on the sounds, accents, and intonations of the voice in its efforts to improve on previous versions. Customers, he says, should easily be able to hear the difference.

Casio’s Use of FonixTalk

Casio’s Spring 2008 products include 16 new models for Japan, 2 for Korea, and 2 for the Chinese market. At present, FonixTalk TTS 6.0 software is used in Casio electronic dictionaries for French, German, Italian, Spanish, and U.S. English. The company also has devices for Mandarin Chinese and Korean languages.

Casio’s marketing strategy does not leave behind high school students. The XD-SP4800 model, which contains the latest dictionaries and reference materials, can be useful for students taking university entrance examinations.
