Infovox iVox provides Mac OS X users with the best voices ever on the Mac. You won't believe your ears hearing these naturally-sounding voices, available in many different languages. What is more, they can be used in any Mac OS X application that uses speech. Including applications such as TextEdit, Preview, Acrobat Reader, Proloquo, KeyStrokes, SwitchXS, VisioVoice and AppleWorks, as well as many educational titles.

You can also use Infovox iVox with Mac OS X built-in speech and accessibility features. Including Tiger's built-in VoiceOver screen reader. Non-English users now have the possibility to hear all the VoiceOver menus and messages in their own language by using Infovox iVox together with VisioVoice (available as part of a bundle).

Infovox iVox was developed by the Acapela Group, the European leader in speech technologies, and is distributed worldwide by AssistiveWare. Infovox iVox is a Universal Binary and can be used on PowerPC and Intel Macs.

Infovox iVox includes all voices available for a language of choice. Initially, the following languages will be available: American English, British English, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Flemish, Spanish, Portuguese, Norwegian, and Swedish. For most languages, male and female voices are available (certain languages include multiple male and/or female voices). American English even includes two child voices. All non-American English languages include one American English female voice as a bonus. If you want to have multiple languages, you can buy Infovox iVox plus one or more language packs.
