Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2012
NeoSpeech, a leader in text-to-speech (TTS) software and speech-enabled solutions, announced today their partnership with i-Free Innovations, a specialist developer and implementer of applications and games for smartphones. i-Free’s virtual assistant, EverFriends, leverages award-winning Artificial Intelligence technology and integration with apps, such as Google Maps, Wikipedia and television-viewing app SPB-TV, allowing users to interact directly through its realistic 3D characters.
“NeoSpeech text-to-speech is a great addition to EverFriends virtual assistant,” said Christopher Moon, CEO of NeoSpeech. “EverFriends’ users now have a professionally-trained virtual assistant with great sounding NeoSpeech TTS voices wherever they go on Android.”
“Everfriends is more than your average virtual assistant,” said Kirill Petrov, co-founder of i-Free. “Our lifelike characters make interacting with a smartphone not only useful, but fun at the same time. Everfriends is pioneering the next frontier in intelligent mobile interaction and virtual assistants.”
NeoSpeech text-to-speech software goes beyond a simple robotic voice that most other apps on the market offer. Interacting with the Everfriends’ quirky, yet playful personas, named Spoony and Brainy, allows users to feel as if they have their own personal assistant, complete with everything from the ability to tell jokes and play games, to help planning vacations and book hotels.
Everfriends, which already boasts one of the highest favorability ratings for mobile assistants in the Google Play app store, combines entertainment and intelligent controls to provide a unique experience for consumers.
