Sayspring, the collaborative design software for voice applications that allows designers to create voice-enabled interfaces and talk to interactive prototypes with no coding or deploying required, has been acquired by Adobe. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. “Since we first launched about a year ago, our team has been on a mission to provide creators with the tools they need to work with voice technology, no coding required. This aligns tightly with Adobe’s vision to give everyone – from emerging artists to global brands – everything they need to design and deliver exceptional digital experiences,” remarked Sayspring CEO and Founder Mark Webster.
Founded by Webster in 2016, Sayspring had raised a total of $1.6M in funding over two rounds. Its backers include Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator, Compound, Scott Belsky, Story Ventures, McCune Capital, Alan Chung, and Peter Stern. Webster sold his previous company SideTour to Groupon in 2013.
