GeoReader, LLC Chooses NeoSpeech’s Text-To-Speech Engine For Its Historical Marker App
June 1, 2012 Syracuse, NY: GeoReader LLC, the developer of the award –winning GeoReader™ app, has chosen NeoSpeech’s Text-to-Speech (TTS) product, VoiceText ™, to offer superior voice quality to its historical marker app for iPhone. GeoReader™ is the first smartphone application of its kind that combines GPS technology with location mapping and voice enabled software. The app allows users to hear the details of historical markers and other points of interest all hands free, directly from their smartphones. As users near a location of historical significance, the app will instantly read information about the point. This enables the user to hear information without looking or interacting with the app, which is especially useful when driving. The addition of the NeoSpeech’s technology provides exceptional clarity and natural sounding voices, so the user experience is much like that having a personal tour guide.
Currently, GeoReader contains many states entire historical marker collections and over 120,000 historical points of interest all over the country, including historical bridges and locations on the national registry of historical places. GeoReader also allows historical information to be added to its database through its website www.mygeoreader.com. The app was launched first on the Android market in September 2010, and is now the highest downloaded history focused app in the Android market. An iPhone version, featuring VoiceText, will be released later this month.
GeoReader recently also won the prestigious “People’s Choice” award at the ION GNSS conference in Portland, OR. GeoReader LLC was also named to the top ten businesses in New York’s Creative Core Emerging Business Competition. Nearly 100 businesses competed for the top honors of $200,000.
Applications for GeoReader™ are limitless, and can be utilized to promote local tourism, for educational purposes, to assist the visually impaired, and as a personal tour guide in a new area. Users now have a way to provide broad site specific information and have it read out loud with a clear, natural sounding voice, anytime, anywhere through GPS , smartphones and GeoReader™.
