PEABODY, Mass., February 26, 2002 - ScanSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSFT), a leading supplier of imaging, speech and language solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Dragon NaturallySpeaking® v6 Legal Solutions, a new release of its award-winning speech recognition software designed specifically for the legal community and value added resellers implementing legal solutions.

Users can now create documents, forms and briefs and complete other critical tasks more efficiently by utilizing the speech recognition product with the industry's highest level of accuracy. The product offers a vast vocabulary incorporating customized legal terms and a number of advanced features that allow users to automate processes and functions for fast, hands-free document creation. Dragon NaturallySpeaking allows legal professionals to focus on client service and counsel rather than time-consuming administrative items and process-oriented tasks.

"Dragon NaturallySpeaking Legal has revolutionized the productivity of our law practice," said Paul Kiesel, managing partner of consumer law firm Kiesel, Boucher and Larsen. "It has allowed us to completely change the way information is processed and has enabled us to provide consistent, high-quality client service, despite a high volume of administrative tasks."

By voice-enabling Windows-based applications, Dragon NaturallySpeaking Legal Solutions software provides legal professionals with the ability to dictate and transcribe depositions, court proceedings and other events without the added cost of transcription services. The ScanSoft® system supports direct dictation into PC applications such as Microsoft Word, and reads files created with mobile dictation devices.

For example, it includes a standard vocabulary of more than 250,000 terms as well as a comprehensive legal vocabulary containing Latin and French law phrases, court names, and abbreviations and specialized legal terms. The software also includes enhanced macro creation capabilities that are used to encapsulate complex processes into a single voice command, and can be used to integrate voice into electronic records management systems, electronic forms, applications and Legal billing products.
