Cepstral LLC, a global leader in premium-quality Text-To-Speech (TTS) technology based in Pittsburgh, provided its distinctive “David” voice for the 2010 season finale of Comedy Central Network’s award-winning animation, South Park.

The 30-minute episode first aired Wednesday, November 17 at 10 EST and is now also available on southparkstudios.com. In the episode a piece of voice-assisted exercise equipment being excessively used by “Sharon Marsh,” mother of key character “Stan,” strongly prompted Sharon – in David’s natural-sounding voice – to exercise even faster and harder.

“South Park’s executive producer chose us because we were able to meet her extremely tight deadlines. Our ability to respond so rapidly was a direct result of Cepstral’s proven history of licensing voice software for numerous applications within movies, TV shows and other media,” states Patrick Dexter, Cepstral’s Director Business Development. “Trey Parker, the show’s co-creator, actually made the ‘David’voice selection himself from our vast library of 50 voices.”

Cepstral makes the overall business of synthetic speech easy, fast, economical, and fun. Its realistic voices can be found within millions of viral Flash animations. Potential uses are virtually endless, in fact. This voice and many others are also available on the patent-pending served-voice site at VoiceForge.com and VoicesForMac.com.
