Hitachi W51H and Casio W51CA - Fonix DECtalk

Casio Hitachi Mobile Communications' (CHMC) two new mobile phones - the Casio W51CA and the Hitachi W51H, which are built on the BREW operating system - feature Fonix text-to-speech and are now available for sale in Japan. Casio Soft integrated Fonix TTS into the Mobile Dictionary, which ‘speaks' dictionary words and sentences to the user in English. Fonix receives unit royalties from the sale of each phone. "Casio Soft chose Fonix text-to-speech as the voice of the Mobile Dictionary because Fonix DECtalk is clear and understandable," says Yutaka Kida, Planning Department Manager, Casio Soft. "We're excited to offer customers such a useful, high-quality device."
