India Comes Up With Text To Speech And Web-based OCR

Press release:

Technology Development for Indian Language (TDIL) Programme of the Department of Information Technology, under a consortium project has developed this Text-To- Speech system. TTS has also been integrated with Non Visual Desktop Access (NVDA) screen reader and Optical Character Recognition System (OCRA). OCR system developed under a TDIL consortium Project for Hindi & Punjabi was also provided on TDIL Data Centre to get user feedback, while the challenges of computationally intensive technology research are parallely being addressed.

This might the biggest boost for accessibility in India, along with making it easier for linguistically diverse Indian population.

If you are interested,

The TTS with Screen Reader (NVDA and OCRA) CD can be obtained on request from Prof Hema Murthy (hema@cse.iitm.ac.in) and OCR can be accessed from TDIL Data Centre (http://www.tdil-dc.in).

Kudos to the Technology Development for Indian Language team.
