Cepstral Donates Open Source MRCP Stack to Telephony Industry

Cepstral LLC announced that it is providing the first open source Media Resource Control Protocol (MRCP) library, OpenMRCP, at no charge to telephony application developers. Cepstral, a pioneer in Text-to-Speech (TTS) voice software, is donating OpenMRCP to the developer community in order to spur the development of telephony applications that interact with distributed speech resources such as TTS and Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR). MRCP is a standards-based communications protocol that allows telephony applications to communicate with speech resources, similar to the way TCP/IP allows browsers to communicate with web sites.
