GM Voices Teams with IVONA to Deliver New Voices and Languages

American (Neutral) Spanish, Castilian Spanish
and German Voices Now Available Featuring BrightVoice Technology; More Languages to
Come in Lifelike TTS

Alpharetta, GA – GM Voices, the worldwide leader in professionally-recorded voice prompts for IVR, speech recognition and other automated voice systems, has helped IVONA Text to Speech successfully launch new voices and languages in American Spanish, Castilian Spanish and German. The voices, part of the recent “IVONA 2” upgrade, feature IVONA’s proprietary BrightVoice technology for lifelike playback.

The American Spanish voices include Penélope and Miguel; Conchita and Enrique for Castilian Spanish; and Marlene and Hans in German. All are available for sampling and purchase, both in TTS at and naturally-recorded voice at

GM Voices and IVONA announced its partnership in October 2010 with the release of the Kendra and Joey voices in American English. In addition to IVONA’s lifelike TTS, GM Voices offers each voice talent and language (US English, American Spanish, Castilian, German) for naturally-recorded voice prompts in the same matching voice. Voice user interface designers attest to the importance of a one-voice experience. GM Voices and IVONA, using natural voice and dynamic TTS together, have made a consistent caller experience both attainable and economical on automated voice applications.

“GM Voices is glad to be partnered with IVONA as they expand their international footprint,” said Marcus Graham, CEO of GM Voices. “The combination of natural voice and lifelike TTS allows companies to engage customers better than ever before on a host of converging technologies including automated IVR, Web and multimedia applications.”

More high-demand languages are being developed by IVONA through GM Voices.
