Give your tech a voice

Our text-to-speech (TTS) system creates human-like voices from written text for the South African market. These synthetic voices can say and read anything in South African languages, on a wide range of devices and platforms, for industry, developers and individuals.

South Africa is a multilingual country, with eleven official languages. This uniqueness has led to years of research and more recently the development of TTS voices for the eleven official South African languages. The TTS voices can be used for impact in real-world applications, such as disseminating information, providing dynamic content, enhancing digital literacy and enabling communication, to name but a few.
