Vocalocity will be increasing the features offered through its telephony offerings with text-to-speech capabilities from NeoSpeech.

The two companies announced a partnership at a conference in New York.

NeoSpeech develops speech applications for handheld, desktop and network devices.

Vocalocity says the NeoSpeech capability will add “crisp, realistic voices” for speech applications to its “voice browser”. The company develops software and tools based on open standards.

It is privately held with funding from Sutter Hill Ventures, Five Paces Ventures, Imlay Investments, Georgia Tech’s ATDC Seed Capital Fund, and Atlanta Technology Angels.
