As TorTalk began developing a reading comprehension solution for people who suffer from dyslexia, they discovered that a lot of the text-to-speech products on the market couldn’t process images, PDFs, or any document that did not have editable text. Of all the products tested, Kofax OmniPage SDK and Nuance Vocalizer had the highest rates of accuracy for recognizing, processing, and speaking text. Combining the two would make it possible for TorTalk users to get the most accurate readings. Today, 75 percent of Swedish universities, including Goteborgs Universitet and Uppsala Universitet, use TorTalk for their students.
"The value of Kofax OmniPage SDK is in the TorTalk product and the difference it makes for the user. For me, when I started using text to speech, I could increase my ability to take in information five-fold.All of a sudden, I could learn so much so quickly. I went from not feeling so smart to feeling as smart as everyone else – it became a big boost for my self confidence and my productivity at work."
