ReadSpeaker, a leading online text-to-speech solutions provider, has announced the launch of the brand new speechCloud API (SCAPI) which allows developers to create applications and enable Internet-connected devices with text-to-speech functionality.
Y Combinator classmates Alexandre Lebrun (the founder and CEO of VirtuOz) and Willy Blandin have launched Wit.ai, a startup geared at providing an API that can incorporate natural language processing and speech recognition into apps, or even hardware.
Plasticity is on a mission to create more conversational natural language processing (NLP). Its API strategy for NLP aims to centralize a solution that brings conversational NLP to apps and systems across the board. The company has two production, and two beta APIs building its arsenal.
