Watch and listen to a 3D animated talker, Baldi, with realistic speech and emotion. Baldi can recite Web pages, RSS feeds, books, and text files. Control his facial look, emotion, and added visual cues, which are helpful to the deaf and hard of hearing and all of us in difficult hearing places. Take your content with you and enjoy Baldi offline.

Thanks so much for the feedback from our customers. We are aware that there are better auditory text to speech systems available, and we are currently working to implement a very high-quality system. However, it is a challenging effort because our facial animation is carried out on the iPhone in real time. When we implement this new system, it will be a free update. 

Baldi has been around for several decades in research, tutoring deaf and hard of hearing children, serving as a language teacher for autistic kids, and instructing children and adults in learning how to speak new languages. He’s overjoyed to make a new presence on the iPhone, and eager to see how he might help bring spoken language into more prominence. Have fun making Baldi talk, and celebrate spoken language rather than just text.
