Voyager Learning Teams With ISpeech To Launch VmathLive® 2.0, New Online Math Program Featuring A Text-to-Speech Program Interface

DALLAS, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyager Learning, a business unit of Cambium Learning ® Group (NASDAQ: ABCD), a leading educational solutions and services company committed to helping all students reach their full potential by providing evidence-based solutions and services, announced today the results of an innovative collaboration with New Jersey-based iSpeech in the development of VmathLive ® 2.0, Voyager Learning's newest online math intervention.

An interactive, web-based tool for grades 2–8, VmathLive empowers students at all performance levels to achieve math mastery and understanding through purposeful practice. Now equipped with the industry-leading iSpeech text-to-speech technology, VmathLive2.0 seamlessly delivers comprehensive audio functionality throughout the entire online experience—and is the latest in a growing list of applications designed to enhance instruction and student achievement.

"We are excited about teaming with iSpeech," said Randy Black, vice president of technology development at Voyager Learning. Because struggling math students often face challenges with reading, the text-to-speech feature has allowed us to provide audio support with engaging voices in English and Spanish to help increase their understanding of math concepts."

Launched in the Fall 2012, VmathLive's integration with iSpeech has enabled Cambium Learning Group to produce large volumes of audio very quickly—accelerating the audio feature's speed-to-market from concept to launch. Working closely together to implement MathML (Math Mark-Up Language) in the proprietary text-to-speech engine, iSpeech and Cambium Learning Group have accurately converted math content to speech audio—and achieved substantial cost savings for Spanish translation over hiring voice talent.

"Through our continuing collaboration with Cambium Learning Group and Voyager Learning, we've expanded our text-to-speech solutions into the most essential areas of education—using our voice technology to empower learning, expand minds, and make education more accessible," said Heath Ahrens, chief executive officer of iSpeech.

Used by 20,000 registered developers more than 2 billion times, iSpeech provides the largest mobile speech development platform in the world—and has been adopted by a wide spectrum of top brands across education, lifestyle, food, travel, retail, finance, gaming, messaging, dictation, translation and social. With more than 40 text-to-speech voices supporting 25 languages, iSpeech adds authentic, human-quality text-to-speech (TTS) and automated speech recognition (ASR) to a variety of applications and enterprises.
