Re: Text To Speech Converter

Which product: Express or Enterprise with CVP? This forum covers both and the answers are usually different.

For Express (and IP IVR), this can be provided using an external ASR/TTS server. Cisco will only support specific versions of Nuance and IBM WebSphere Voice.

Re: Text To Speech Converter

The same applies for Enterprise, only Nuance and IBM are supported.  Depending on the peripheral, you might be able to create some sort of web service to interact with it or if it's a true IVR then you can check if ICM is compatible with it.

Depends.. How does the thing integrate with the Nortel?

Re: Text To Speech Converter


Go to the TTS provider and ask the exact question if they do that is the best place to get documentation.  As mentioned by others here only Nuance and IBM are commonly used.

Sooner or later you will run into issues. If the organization has decided on Cisco platform then I would suggest invest some time on Nuance options as many proven and ready solutions are available else you spend many hours of PS time.

Good luck.
