Newark, NJ (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
February 27, 2013 – iSpeech Inc., a leader in speech technology solutions, today unveiled its publishing platform. The platform, built on human quality text-to-speech technology, enables publishers to instantly and inexpensively convert books, articles, and other text-based content into audio. iSpeech is launching the platform today with two partners – Evernote and Pearson – with additional publishers coming soon.
“As an auditory learner, I’ve always preferred listening to content over reading it,” said Founder and CEO Heath Ahrens, “I am excited to launch this platform today with both Evernote and Pearson and take a big step towards making all the world’s content accessible via audio.”
“Evernote Clearly provides distraction-free reading of web pages by removing the clutter of navigation and ads. With iSpeech integration, our Evernote Premium and Business users can now go one step further and have the web read to them," said Phil Constantinou, VP of Products at Evernote. "The iSpeech API is a perfect complement to Evernote's article detection technology and with it, we created a great new feature for Clearly."
The platform provides a solution for everyone from small websites and blogs to the largest of book publishers. Depending on the format of their content and level of customization required, publishers can choose from one of three options:
Audio Book Publishers: iSpeech’s audio book publishing tool enables rapid conversion of PDF books into audio files at a fraction of the cost of professional voice talent. For more information or to request an evaluation version, visit http://www.iSpeech.org/publishers

Web and Mobile Site Admins: iSpeech enables any web or mobile site to easily drop in a play button for dynamic audio playback. This option is ideal for small to medium sized businesses looking for a fast and inexpensive solution for a talking, accessible web site.
