On 19th January, Ceitidh, the world's first Scottish Gaelic Computer Voice, was officially launched by Dr. Alasdair Allan, Minister for Learning, Science and Scotland’s Languages at Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu.

Representatives from the funders (Scottish Government, SQA, Scottish Funding Council and Bòrd na Gàidhlig), from CereProc and Akerbeltz, the creators of the voice,  and from CALL Scotland, who distribute the software, all learned how the new voice is assisting learners in Gaelic medium education.

This video report from BBC Alba gives the full story.

The students demonstrated how they can use the voice to read back their typed work and improve spelling and accuracy, and how it can also help learners to read material from the internet and from other digital sources.

Visit CALL Scotland's Scottish Voice web site to find out more and to download the new voice.
