Daily API RoundUp: Nexmo Voice, Proximi.io, Audiosear.ch, Heap, MediaWiki, Vizdum

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or source code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

We've added 12 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Analytics, Messaging, Dashboards, and Voice. One highlight today is the recently released Nexmo Voice API, which can convert text to speech in 23 different languages. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
