Posted February 24, 2009 at 9:31am by iClarified
Acapela Group and AssistiveWare have announced the release of Infovox iVox 1.3 with new voices and new languages. Infovox iVox provides natural-sounding voices for multiple languages that work with virtually any Speech Manager compliant Mac OS X application. Also, as of today the School license (max 150 computers) has been expanded to no longer be limited to deployment in a single school but allow allocation to machines in multiple schools of a district.

Infovox iVox 1.3 is a free upgrade for existing users that adds a host of new voices and languages: Vittorio for Italian, Rachel for British, Alyona for Russian, Dimitris for Greek, and Olav for Norwegian. The Russian and Greek voices require Mac OS X 10.5. The other voices require 10.3.9 or later.

Infovox iVox can be used with Apple's VoiceOver screen reader as well as many Mac OS X applications, including Preview, TextEdit, AssistiveWare's VisioVoice and Proloquo, ConvenienceWare GhostReader, and Adobe Acrobat. The voices also work great with the leading educational software, such as Kurzweil 3000 for Macintosh version 3.0.4 and 4.0 and TextHelp's Read and Write Gold for Mac version 2.1.0 and later. This means that teachers can now use this best-of-breed software with the industry leading Infovox iVox voices to enhance the learning experience of their students.

Infovox iVox voices are sold per language with each language consisting of one or more male and/or female voices. All languages contain the American English Heather voice as a bonus. All languages, except the Scandinavian ones, are available for a suggested retail price of $99 (USD) in North America and 99 Euro excluding VAT everywhere else. This is for the first language. Additional language packs are available for a suggested retail price of $49.50 (USD) in North America and 49.50 Euro excluding VAT everywhere else. Scandinavian languages are available for a suggested retail price of 219 euro excluding VAT and as an additional language for 109.50 euro excluding VAT. Bundles of Infovox iVox with GhostReader are also available starting at US$ / Euro 109 for a single user. For educational institutions teacher kits, classroom and school licenses are available as well.

For more information, a fully-functional downloadable demo and to listen to samples of the voices please consult the product page. For more information contact AssistiveWare directly or one of our distributors such as Origin Instruments Corporation for North America or ordiTICE for France.
