Credo Adds Text To Speech Through Partnership With ReadSpeaker®

BOSTON, OXFORD, England and HUIS TER HEIDE, Netherlands, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Credo, the industry leader for information skills solutions, today announced it is integrating technology from ReadSpeaker, the world leader in online text to speech, into its Literati solutions. ReadSpeaker's text-to-speech technology is one of many recent additions to the innovative learning technologies that Literati combines with authoritative scholarly content and customizable services to help libraries do more.

The new text-to-speech technology is now available to the growing number of libraries that subscribe to Literati Public, the SIIA CODiE 2013 winner for Best General Reference Service. Text to speech will soon be added to Literati Academic, a CODiE award finalist for Best Education Reference Solution, as well as to Literati School and Literati Student Athlete, which were both launched earlier this year.

"At Credo, we're focused on making authoritative information accessible to all users. Text to speech removes barriers for auditory learners, learners who are visually impaired and those who are learning English as a second language," said Carol Helton, Credo's Executive Vice President of Marketing and Customer Solutions. "ReadSpeaker pioneered online text to speech in 1999, so we are very excited to leverage their experience, expertise and technologies to make Literati an even stronger solution for libraries and the diverse user base that they serve."

"Literati is unique in that it helps individuals hone information skills that transfer beyond the classroom to the workplace and everyday life," said Joop Heijenrath, ReadSpeaker Cofounder and responsible for ReadSpeaker's business operations. "We are proud to partner with Credo to enhance Literati and support such an important mission."
