[Strength of products/technologies]
Our strength is our system for promptly responding to market feedback (for future product development). This system is possible because we conduct all development in-house, other than the voice synthesis engine, and also because we provide integrated sales and support. Our Real Narrators 2 is a proprietary product for the enterprise market. It is superior to similar products in that it can easily convert PowerPoint presentations into narrated slideshows. Its other advantages include: (1) coordination with PowerPoint animation effects; (2) switching between Japanese and other languages within the same slide; and (3) ease of intonation adjustments and other settings. It can also (4) convert a PowerPoint presentation into a video file just by selecting the Create Video menu item, without needing to set complex parameters like slide switching timing. More and more large corporations are seeing the value in these advantages and adopting Real Narrators 2.

[Representative's message]
Our company develops products to eliminate information divides, which is our company’s founding principle. For example, many visually impaired people use our FocusTalk screen reader program in their workplaces. Our JukeDoX and Real Narrators 2 and both multilingual synthesized voice software products developed from FocusTalk technology. They are used by many listed corporations, including automakers, food companies, construction firms, and life insurance companies. We believe they can meet the needs of your company, too. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our representative director is responsible for sales activities, and we offer sales support by telephone and email for prompt service. We develop our products in-house, so we can customize products to suit your needs (for example, by adding a specific foreign language to a product).
