Ivona is responsible for the text to speech technology that is used on Kindle Fire tablets -features include "Text to Speech", "Voice Guide" and "Explore by Touch". Their technology is used by thousands of devs and businesses worldwide and is not simply dual diagnosis treatment centers for text/voice output but a progressively R and D led concern.

They are regarded as the industry's leading text to speech quality when it comes to voice quality, access and how uncannily accurate their software is. At the moment IVONA has 17 languages which are supported with 44 voices and is a substantial acquisition for Amazon.
