Projects
Assistive Technology, At AT&T Labs - Research, we apply our speech, language and media technologies to give people with disabilities more independence, privacy and autonomy.

AT&T Natural VoicesTM Text-to-Speech, Natural Voices is AT&T's state-of-the-art text-to-speech product, taking text and producing natural-sounding, synthesized speech in a variety of voices and languages.

AT&T WATSON (SM) Speech Technologies, AT&T WATSON (SM) integrates several speech technologies, including speech recognition. Tools allow for tuning recognition, adapting language & acoustic models, and adding custom extensions.

Connecting Your World, The need to be connected is greater than ever, and AT&T Researchers are creating new ways for people to connect with one another and with their environments, whether it's their home, office, or car.
