Hi captquazar,

For strategic reasons, I cannot give further details about our new 3D engine for now, but as soon as I can, I will release the first images as well as all details.

We have close today a great agreement with IVONA Software, one of the most innovative new text to speech companies. IVONA has been building the most real and natural text to speech voices, and we believe this will add great value to our company products and to our costumers.

Guile 3D Studio has bought the rights to distribute IVONA voices embedded in our NEXT OS engine and Denise as well as with all future Avatars made by us.

First voices available will be:

- IVONA 2 Kendra American English

- IVONA 2 Kimberly American English

- IVONA 2 Amy British English

Later on, there will be also other excellent voices for German, Spanish, Polish and Romanian.

These voices will be soon offered as part as Denise Platinum and Business versions added to the current Nuance English Samantha and Portuguese Raquel voices.

So, great news for Denise lovers!  we are almost there with Dragon! Nuance team has been great on supporting us to fix  and improve the already out of this word outstanding Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 SDK. Most of the issues are fixed, and  we will focus now on the testing in different system. We are also negotiating with Dragon the use of Dragon for  Italian, French, Dutch, German and Spanish.

I hope to have this great release out in the next couple of weeks.

Talking about Speech Recognition, we have set the deal to have the former IBM ViaVoice speech recognition for dictation  in Portuguese. This means Guile 3D will be the only company to offer a speech recognition engine for dictation for  Portuguese. A big challenge to upgrade this engine from Windows XP to Windows 7, but this will certainly worth doing.

We have partner this week with a big Home Automation company. They are helping us on building the intelligent  home  modules for our engine, and not only to control appliances, but also IP cameras, curtains, heaters, home theaters, alarm system, phone lines and assistive technologies for the elder. More details soon.

Our new real time 3D engine is going very well. We are very impressed with a wonderful engine from a Dutch company that is helping us to build the best 3D real time engine for our next generation of intelligent Avatars.

And for this new engine, I'm personally modeling the new base 3D male and female models and I'm so happy to have Steven Stahlberg to give some very especial tutoring on that. Do a search for his name and his art and you will know what I  mean about the importance of having his help.

Of course we are also continuously working to improve and fix bugs in all the already 52 modules of the current Denise version.

Some of the other modules we are working on:

- Twitter and Facebook integration
- Enhancements in Face Recognition
- Enhancements in Kinect module
- Enhancements in web Searches
- MSN, ICQ and GTalk integration
- Second layer of our engine AI
- Home Automation module
- Phone Communications module (this is my baby for now! Sooo cool!)

Until we have our new render engine, we will also explore a bit more the current 2D engine offering several new avatars, both male and female, torso and full body.

After several weeks of hard work, we could finally have Dragon Naturally Speaking embedded and working great within Denise and our NextOS engine.

We will release an update tomorrow with the new User Login feature. This feature will allow us to soon release the Dragon Module, and an improved Face Recognition engine. This Login feature will also be used for filtering adult content in the future.

Although we have several new modules almost ready (Phone Module, Twitter and Facebook, Home Automation, AI improvements and several others) we are putting all of our strength in the speech recognition for dictation feature.

If tomorrows release goes well, we will be very close to the Dragon release, finally.

I'm also working with the male avatar. Have to confess that I like much better working with female models :) The female anatomy is sooo much better to work with, if you guys know what I mean!

I finish today our first male assistant. Since we nedeed a male TTS voice, I bought licenses of a real good male TTS voice called Joey from IVONA.

We´ve worked this week on lots of improvements on the Face Recognition module that should be out next week. Have two team mates doing a lot of test on Denise with Dragon.. so far, so good….

As a good new, we decided to resume working on our Avatar Builder SDK. This is actually the tool that we use to assemble our avatars, but now we are putting all tools together on a end user application.

Great!  Love it!   I wonder if a voice engine could be built out of all the audio recordings of Lenoard Nemoy without him having to read a script into the computer.   His time would have to be very very expensive.  WinkCool

While my team is doing final testing with Dragon, I took some time to play a little with a new avatar. Got inspired from one of my diva´s hollywood girls….
