Dejal introduces Narrator 1.0

A Mac OS X application to read out stories in multiple voices.

PORTLAND, Oregon -- July 19, 2002 -- Dejal Systems today introduced the general release of its first product for Mac OS X, called Narrator. This application utilizes speech synthesis to read out the contents of a text document, using different voices for different parts. You have a range of "actors" that can portray any number of "characters", so various passages of your document are spoken with differing voices, pitches, inflections, etc. You can have it read out a play or story with appropriate voices. The words are highlighted on-screen, and there are also a couple of silent read-along options for stage directions, or for you to read out your own parts.
