SPEAK SOFTLY: KURZWEIL APPLIED ENABLES USERS TO RUN WINDOWS APPLICATIONS BY TALKING TO THEM

By CBR Staff Writer

Waltham, Massachusetts-based speech technology specialist Kurzweil Applied Intelligence Inc has launched a software package designed to enable Windows users to run their applications by talking to them. Kurzweil Voice for Windows release 1.0 supports voice input for dictation, enabling the user to create text and enter data. The product incorporates a new, more accurate version of the company’s large-vocabulary, speaker-independent, discrete-speech recognition technology. Kurzweil claims Voice for Windows automatically adapts to language patterns, boosting recognition accuracy with easy error correction. The first version works with the major Microsoft Corp, WordPerfect Corp and Lotus Development Corp applications, according to the company. The $1,000 suggested retail price includes a signal processor-based sound board and microphone; the package is shipping now.
