Text To Speech
CARE (Call Reassurance) is a calling program from Database Systems Corp. that sends a recorded message to seniors and residents home alone to check on their well-being. By pressing the "I'm OK" phone key, the resident signals to CARE that they are OK.
Database Systems Corp. (DSC) is a leading provider of call center technology including phone systems and software. DSC provides Text To Speech features within all of our products including our CARE calling program.
What Is Text To Speech?
"A text-to-speech (TTS) system converts normal language text into speech; other systems render symbolic linguistic representations like phonetic transcriptions into speech."
To learn more how this technology is used with both inbound and outgoing call applications, visit our text to speech web page.
Calls are made by our automated CARE phone system and include both greeting messages as well as a message menu that provides the CARE subscriber with a list of options from which to choose.
Likewise call reminders can be sent to senior to remind them to take their medications.
These messages may be pre-recorded or may be converted from text entered by the CARE administrator. The administrator simply types the text of the message into the CARE editor when adding a new subscriber.
The CARE system comes with a free Microsoft text to speech engine, but DSC also licenses other commercial text to speech engines that may provide better quality. To listen to a sample text to speech conversion, use our Demonstration that is provided below.
