Dejal introduces Narrator 1.0b1

A Mac OS X application to read out stories in multiple voices.

PORTLAND, Oregon — June 7, 2002 — Dejal Systems today introduced its
first product for Mac OS X, called Narrator. This application utilizes
speech synthesis to read out the contents of a text document, using
different voices for different parts. You have a range of “actors” that can
portray any number of “characters”, so various passages of your document
are spoken with differing voices, pitches, inflections, etc. You can have
it read out a play or story with appropriate voices. The words are
highlighted on-screen, and there is also a silent read-along option for
stage directions, or for you to read out your own parts.

Pricing & Availability:
This introductory version of Narrator is immediately available as a free
download from

Narrator requires Mac OS X 10.1 or later.
