Invicta-TTS (Invicta Text to Speech) was built and inspired after the founder discovered that local government funding for accessible technologies was being cut.
He went to work on a prototype and after 3 days and 3 late nights, he had 2 intelligent AI systems that included the Text to Speech system. a Mac and Windows Client. He attempted and failed to get the support of his department behind the project and so continued on without external funding. He decided to make a simple to text to speech application based upon the previous intelligent AI speeches systems and demonstrated the new application to the student support services who where incredibly excited to finally have free text to speech tools for students! As such Invicta-TTS was born.
Invicta-TTS is being released to the world for free with the hopes that students can benefit from the software around the world.
