ROKTalk Multi-Language Text-to-Speech Service Deploys to UK Websites

Tue 29th Mar 2011

ROK Global PLC, the UK-based technology, applications and services company listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, has announced ROKTalk, its specialist multi-language text-to-speech service, is now operational on more than 100 public service websites and 300 school websites across the UK. 

Designed to maximise accessibility and usability of websites, ROKTalk is a server-based product developed by ROK which automatically converts written text into real time, near human audible speech in a variety of languages.

“ROKTalk is proving to be a very cost-effective, useful and practical service for our customers as it not only increases the usability of their websites globally but it addresses the increasingly important issue of website accessibility which many organisations are failing provide, particularly with regards to people who suffer from severe dyslexia or visual impairments.” Said Jonathan Kendrick, Chairman of ROK Global.
