sComm Selects ReadSpeaker to Increase Efficacy of Speech Generating Device Communication

BOSTON , January 26 /Businesswire/ - ReadSpeaker, the most trusted, independent digital voice partner for global businesses, today announced it is has been selected by sComm, the leading developer of speech generating devices (SGD) for the deaf and hard of hearing, to power the company’s UbiDuo devices. By embedding ReadSpeaker’s text-to-speech (TTS) technology into sComm’s UbiDuo devices, the companies are improving real-time communication capabilities between the hearing and deaf and hard-of-hearing communities.

sComm’s UbiDuo SGDs enable people who are deaf to communicate with a person who is hearing without a sign language interpreter. The UbiDuo devices allow deaf and hearing people to talk to each other face-to-face and interact simultaneously. These devices are the only communication devices in the world that allow for real time, face-to-face conversation without the use of sign language. By adding ReadSpeaker’s TTS technology, these devices are now able to incorporate speech output, a capability specific to this newest generation of device.

When searching for a TTS partner, sComm evaluated several different potential providers, but ultimately found that ReadSpeaker delivered the most natural, high quality voice output. UbiDuo devices are used in a variety of settings—including medical settings— meaning high quality output was paramount. sComm needed a TTS partner that could guarantee clarity in all settings.

“The partnership with ReadSpeaker has allowed us to take our UbiDuo SGDs to the next level,” said Jason Curry, CEO of sComm. “With ReadSpeaker’s technology embedded into our devices, we are now confident that sComm delivers best standalone SGDs in the world. The reactions that we have gotten from users have been overwhelmingly positive, and we are proud to be delivering this level of accessibility and ease for our customers.”

“ReadSpeaker has a longstanding commitment to delivering accessibility to the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities,” said Matt Muldoon, President, North America of ReadSpeaker. “By partnering with sComm and embedding our TTS technology into the UbiDuo devices, we are enabling faster, easier and more clear communication for people of all hearing ability in a variety of settings. We look forward to continuing to be a leading technology provider in this space and are honored to have been selected as a technology partner by sComm.”
