HTP’s resident company Sacrament IT has developed a synthesis system of the Georgian language by the order of the Union of the Blind of Georgia. It took Minsk programmers only some months to create software that will enable blind people to master the Georgian language.

”The program allows to change the reading speed, intonation, to add new words to the users accent dictionary“, says Valery Egorov, the founder of Sacrament IT.

The possibility of setting speech rhythmic and pronunciation pitch is represented in this program. Specifically for the program, a new male Georgian-speaking voice module was developed. It allows qualitatively to synchronize text electronic information. Texts, well-read by professional narrators, are processed by this program, which automatically splits the words into the ”allophones“ ─ special sound ”bricks“. Subsequently, the speech synthesizer composes new sound combinations from them.

The leading specialists of Minsk State Linguistic University took part in the development of these phonetic and linguistic units.
