Thank you, Adam ! This week we have received a Very Special Guest in our Swedish office: Adam, a 9-year old Swedish boy fascinated by text to speech. Wahoo!
Adam was born in week 23. Problems with eyesight is quite common after premature birth. When Adam was a few months old, and after eye surgery, it was concluded that he was blind. Adam uses, among other tools, the screen reader Jaws, with Infovox4 voices. He has a big interest in text-to-speech, and in Acapela voices in particular.
Adam visited us with his mother. His questions were many and he was very enthusiastic and energetic. Exclamations and sounds were a main topic of the conversation. Adam's enthusiasm didn't fade and he exclaimed "I love this company!". We love you too Adam! Proud to develop voices for people like you!
