With technology rapidly evolving and changing, the development and creation of new applications have increased productivity and efficiency in both our personal lives and on the commercial level. Recently, communication aids have evolved from talking calculators to up-to-date three-dimensional audiovisual products. In fact; the inclusion of technology today has become even more significant. For example; the development of software that is able to convert text to speech is a prime example of how modern technology can be of great assistance to us by providing the end user the ability to conduct tasks concurrently. The ability to multi-task can help the user of the program be more effective and efficient with his or her time, resulting in an increase in productivity.
Overall, text-to-speech software is applicable in all kinds of human-machine contacts. For example, in warning and alarm systems, synthesized speech is applied to provide more precise information of the current conditions. Using speech rather than warning lights or buzzers gives a better opportunity to deliver the warning signal. Speech synthesizer may also be utilized to catch some desktop messages from a computer, such as printer status or received messages. In addition, text to speech applications can synthesize and convert foreign languages, include specific accents and/or dialects to better relate to customers. The application aspects for speech synthesis are growing all the time and thus attracting more funds for research and development areas. As such, the variety of applications for text-to-speech software will continue to grow.
