Loquendo Embedded TTS & ASR Now Available for Android, Maemo and Moblin Mobile Platforms, in All Major Languages
Loquendo, leading speech technology provider worldwide, announces that Loquendo Embedded Technologies - ASR and TTS - are now available for OEMs and developers of multimedia applications on the Android, Maemo and Moblin software platforms.
The Maemo platform is built on large parts of open source components, and was developed by Nokia in collaboration with many open source projects such as the Linux kernel, Debian, GNOME, and many more. The Maemo SDK provides an open development environment for applications on top of the Maemo platform. Maemo is based on the Linux operating system kernel - able to support a wide range of different kinds of devices from wrist watches to large server systems, making it ideally placed for the MID (Mobile Internet Devices) and netbook as well as smartphone markets.
With the availability of Loquendo technologies, Maemo developers will be able to unleash the potential of speech in developing voice-enabled apps.
The Moblin platform, short for 'mobile Linux', is built around the Intel Atom processor and is an open source operating system for MIDs, netbooks, nettops and embedded devices. The concept behind the Moblin project is to create an operating system specifically designed for netbooks and MID devices by minimizing both boot times and power consumption. The central piece of the Moblin architecture is a hardware and usage-model independent layer providing a single, uniform way of developing such devices. Moblin is based on the Linux kernel.
Early this month, Intel and Nokia announced the merging of Moblin and Maemo into the MeeGo mobile software platform, for which Loquendo will also offer full support.
Loquendo Embedded TTS and ASR are the ideal choice for speech-enabling mobile apps and services, including voice-enabled phones, navigation applications, MIDs, ebook readers, assistive devices, etc.
Loquendo TTS is natural, fluent and highly expressive synthetic speech, while Loquendo ASR is fast, accurate speech recognition even on large-vocabulary, natural-language speech. Both are high-performing, high quality technologies, however compact the device.
Whether on device side or server side, Loquendo offers the same extensive choice of languages and voices, regardless of the architectural solution, enabling service providers to guarantee a seamless service even in mixed environments - where voice content generation is shared across device and network.
Loquendo Embedded Technologies leverage Loquendo TTS mixed language capability, support the TeleAtlas® and Navteq™ SAMPA phonetic alphabets, and are available for all major embedded operating systems: Android, Maemo, Moblin, Linux, iPhone, Symbian OS™ S60, Windows Mobile 5 & 6 (all editions), CE 5 & 6, Windows XP Embedded and Tablet PC ed., VxWorks and QNX.
