IVO Software was established in 2001 by Łukasz Osowski and Michał Kaszczuk, fellow graduates of the Gdańsk University of Technology, who continue their leadership roles today. In 2011, they changed the company name to IVONA Software, its admired and recognized market brand.
The products and services we develop are exceptional in both their technical sophistication and human-like quality of voice and inflection. Our TTS experts use an approach that leverages advanced speech synthesis algorithms based on the elements of artificial intelligence and human speech as the interface in communication with a computer. We continually invest in research and development, setting new trends and directions in this dynamic field.
Uses for IVONA speech synthesis are constantly evolving, but the most common voice-over applications include:
- IVR and announcing systems,
- electronic and mobile devices,
- applications and IT systems.
All these factors combine to create a multiple award-winning IVONA Text-to-Speech product offering virtually unlimited practical and technological applications for everyone – from individual users to global corporations. The human-like speech quality, ease of use, and variety of voices, codecs and licenses all contribute to a universality that improves access for all.
To support our mission of "accessibility for all", we offer comprehensive technologies to fully voice any computer, application, device or home appliance. We continue to work closely with charity organizations like RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) to provide reliable, high-quality TTS services for the blind and vision impaired.
IVONA accompanies people in their daily lives and work, transforming the world of digital content into an experience that can educate, entertain, and promote using the power of the human voice.
