Cereproc speech technology to power Wanderword


Cereproc’s realistic synthetic voice personas to power Wanderword’s interactive audio-book platform


Text-to-speech solutions & speech synthesis research company CereProc and Kirkland-based software company PBJ Synthetics are partnering to create the most immersive interactive audio books for today’s globally connected and mobile lifestyles. Cereproc’s voice personas will be fully integrated into the Wanderword story platform to deliver true human phonetics processing, and thus, ignite Wanderword’s stories to come alive.


PBJ Synthetic’s founder Peter Zetterberg comments, “Cereproc’s impressive speech technologies allow us to create believable, delightful and immersive audio-book experiences, relying solely on synthetic speech and sound effects. Using Text to Speech instead of traditional voice-acting, we can tweak and refine our content on the fly and after releasing a story. With Cereproc’s growing library of world languages, Wanderword stories will be translated cost-effectively to countries around the world”


“Wanderword is an example of the interactive application that CereProc loves to support and be involved with, it is unique and shows initiative, plus brings speech technology to a greater audience”
