GOK turns 1.0, and FreeTTS turns 1.2

Following on the heels of the Solaris 10 release, are two more accessibility releases!

FreeTTS, the open source software text-to-speech engine written in the Java language, recently turned 1.2. FreeTTS ships with Solaris 10, and is one of the text-to-speech engines supported by the Gnopernicus screen reader/magnifier. The FreeTTS project is led by Willie Walker, one of my companions at the Sun Accessibility Program Office.

Earlier this week, the incredible, award winning, dynamic GNOME On-screen Keyboard (aka GOK) turned version 1.0! Like FreeTTS, GOK ships with Solaris 10. As noted elsewhere, GOK provides a host of features not available in any other on-screen keyboard. To steal a line from David Bolter, Go Gok!

Comments:

Thanks for the kind words about GOK Peter! One minor note: I <em>think</em> Simon Bates was first to say "Go Gok!" a lot and it quickly became a quiet team cheer. I started using it in GOK emails quite early but Simon is really to blame.
