Chant software and services enables you to do more with Nuance speech technology. Start talking with your applications using Nuance recognizers and synthesizers in a matter of minutes. It's that easy.

Or, if you prefer, have Chant provide you the code to drop into your applications and start talking with them with little or no effort on your part at all.

Chant application-ready class libraries simplify using the Nuance Dragon NaturalSpeaking SDK.

In addition to supporting the features provided by this recognizer, your applications can also take advantage of Chant features not implemented in the recognizer's SDK such as:

  • Manage context-based and context-free recognition by dynamically adding, removing, enabling, and disabling, command, and dictation vocabularies.
  • Select and adjust recognizer property settings dynamically.
  • Leverage a common persistence framework across programming languages and component formats.
  • Integrate with almost any application type, architecture, programming language, and development environment used for Windows platforms.

Chant application-ready class libraries simplify using Nuance Vocalizer voices. Nuance Vocalizer voices can be accessed using the Nuance Vocalizer SDK.

The benefit of using the Chant class libraries is that your applications can take advantage of Chant features not implemented in the speech SDKs such as:

  • Synthesize text to speech with a simple request.
  • Select and adjust synthesizer and audio options and property settings dynamically.
  • Integrate with almost any application type, architecture, programming language, and development environment used for Windows platforms.

  • Manage context-based and context-free recognition by dynamically adding, removing, enabling, and disabling, command and dictation vocabularies.
  • Recognize from microphone (live) and file (recorded) audio sources.

You can easily manage Vocalizer voices within your applications using SpeechKit from Chant. Your applications can:

  • Synthesize speech from anywhere within your application.
  • Easily enumerate and select a voice.
  • Easily adjust the spoken output speed and volume.
  • Take advantage of built-in audio management and synthesize to the audio format needed by your application.
