IVONA Software Sp. z o.o. has received a grant from the European Regional Development Fund for the development of the IVONA TTS technology for mobile devices. The project’s grant is covered by the measure 1.4-4.1 POIG [Innovative Economy Operational Program] and now the Company is at the stage of implementing the results of R&D activities. IVONA Software finished the performance of the project on May 31, 2011.
The entire business activity of IVONA Software Sp. z o.o. is related to the text-to-speech technology development. This refers to both R&D activities and product commercialization.
The objective of the performance of the project entitled „Development of the IVONA Embedded text-to-speech technology for mobile devices by IVONA Software Sp. z o.o. (62.01 PKWiU [Polish Classification of Goods and Services] 2008)” is to increase the Gdynia-based Company’s innovativeness by means of the development of the Company’s own software in the scope of the IVONA TTS technology. The project’s performance consisted in developing a TTS technology for mobile devices by way of completing planned R&D activities and its marketing as a group of IVONA Embedded products.
The performance of the project at the implementation stage (Measure 4.1) was related to the completion of market tests for the products which are based on the newly developed technology. Relevant extensions and market variants which are of the greatest sales potential will be added to the products. The implementation stage is an element of the pre-competition phase related to the marketing of the new technology.
The project activities focused on the development of a non-commercial prototype in the form of software to be used for product tests and for demonstration purposes.
The outcome of the project’s performance is the development of software for mobile devices (Embbeded) – which finds applicability in such devices as mobile phones, tablets, e-book readers, navigation, and reading devices for visually impaired individuals.
Voices for devices (e.g. phones) supported by the Android operating system (e.g. Samsung Galaxy, HTC Desire, Sony Ericsson Xperia etc.) are a perfect example of the project’s outcomes.
