German Ministry of Justice Selects ScanSoft's Dragon NaturallySpeaking

German Integrator ASKA Installs More Than One Thousand Units of Legal Version Throughout Germany; Replaces Costly Manual Transcription with Easy-to-Use Speech Recognition Software

STUTTGART, Germany and GENT, Belgium, February 24, 2003 - ScanSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSFT), a leading supplier of imaging, speech and language solutions, today announced that the ministry of justice of Baden-Wuerttemberg in Germany has selected ScanSoft® Dragon NaturallySpeaking® XP Legal Edition for hundreds of courts to replace manual transcription with its automatic speech recognition solution.

Implemented by ASKA, a German solution integrator, this solution will help the ministry save time and money in costly manual transcription fees and will help legal teams to quickly and easily transcribe depositions, reports and other documents requiring time-intensive transcription. The traditional approach of dictation and manual transcription was costly and time-consuming, reducing productivity. Since the implementation of Dragon NaturallySpeaking XP, reports are being created quickly and easily, resulting in increased productivity and cost reduction.

"Following our initial Dragon NaturallySpeaking XP pilot project in the court of Reutlingen, I was thrilled with the productivity gain and cost savings. The software's accuracy and the training offered by the integrator were unmatched," comments Peter Uhde, judge at the court of Reutlingen. "In fact, the results were so impressive, we decided to implement the software across the entire territory."

"We are really excited about the added value that ASKA has created by implementing the largest volume installation of the software in a legal environment in Germany," says Peter Hauser, senior vice president and general manager for ScanSoft International. "This agreement underscores our success in delivering value to legal organizations of any size and our commitment to eliminating the barriers to productivity - wherever they exist."

Developed through close interaction with the legal community, Dragon NaturallySpeaking XP Legal Solutions is the only speech recognition product created to address the workflow and vocabulary needs of the lawyer, paralegal and legal administrative professional. Its vast vocabulary is augmented by a comprehensive legal vocabulary containing Latin and German law phrases, court names and specialized legal terms.
