Meridian One Speech provides the low-cost multilingual text-to-speech (TTS)
engine Orpheus for users worldwide who need responsive, fast-talking speech.
Meridian One was created by John Rye in 2006. In
July that year Meridian One acquired the Orpheus TTS engine from Dolphin
Oceanic Ltd. Meridian One then radically redeveloped Orpheus to match
its new worldwide market and web-based distribution.
Meridian One's Orpheus TTS
is unique in its ability to render highly intelligible speech at the fastest talking
rates: a real benefit to people who use speech day-in day-out to access on-screen text.
Orpheus is favoured by many blind and visually impaired users of desk and laptop
devices throughout the world.
Orpheus TTS and Orpheus TTS Plus can be downloaded for
free 30-day evaluations.
Activation licences for unlimited use can be purchased by clicking on the
Activate Now button on your installed Orpheus control panel.
Alternatively, you can select links on this site's
