Leading distracted driving app creator opens award-winning text to speech and voice recognition APIs to mobile developers.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 7, 2010
iSpeech®, creator of the DriveSafe.ly™, and Caller ID Reader™ mobile apps announces the launch of DriveSafe.ly™ 2.0, reading text (SMS) and email messages aloud and allowing voice response, hands free. iSpeech’s award-winning anti-distracted driving app, DriveSafe.ly™, first launched one year ago. Since then, the first of its kind application has been used by over 6 million people and has read over one-quarter-billion messages to users. With DriveSafe.ly™ 2.0, iSpeech® hopes to reduce the danger created by texting while driving by allowing people to send and receive txt messages (SMS) and emails entirely by voice.
The DriveSafe.ly™ 2.0 technology provides a smooth user experience with human-sounding text to speech (TTS) and human quality automated speech recognition (ASR). Once activated, it is possible to communicate by sending and receiving messages without touching the phone. Once an incoming txt message is read aloud, the user can choose to replay the message, speak a response back to the sender or even call back the sender. DriveSafe.ly™ 2.0 is available for BlackBerry on BlackBerry App World™ with version 2.0 for Android and iPhone coming soon.
