VoiceObjects to Integrate ScanSoft OpenSpeech Dialog Modules and Extend Partnership Agreement

Peabody, MASS and Ghent, BELGIUM – April 20, 2005 -- ScanSoft, a global leader of speech and imaging solutions and VoiceObjects, a global leader of Voice Application Management Systems, today announced a formal strategic partnership. VoiceObjects will integrate ScanSoft’s successful OpenSpeech® DialogModules (OSDMs) into the latest release of VoiceObjects X5. The companies also agreed to expand joint sales and marketing activities.

ScanSoft® OSDMs are intelligent dialog technology objects that accelerate time to market by packaging application functionality for VoiceXML speech applications. By delivering all the prompts, grammars, call flow, and other parameters required to address frequent speech application tasks, OSDMs allow businesses to accelerate time to market, streamline application development, and deliver a consistent user interface for speech-enabled VoiceXML content. As part of this agreement, VoiceObjects will fully integrate current and future versions of OSDMs into VoiceObjects X5.

“The majority of VoiceObjects customers today use ScanSoft® OpenSpeech® Recognizer 3.0 and RealSpeak™ 4.0,” said Peter Hauser, general manager and senior vice president, ScanSoft International. “With the integration of OSDMs into VoiceObjects X5, we are excited to further strengthen our technology collaboration at the application and professional services level.”

With VoiceObjects X5, companies have the capabilities to create, test, deploy and analyze voice application services through one single tightly integrated environment, while unique voice application server technology offers full multi-service, multi-tenant capabilities and cluster management. Enterprise organizations are empowered to efficiently manage the complexities involved in operating voice applications through the whole life cycle.

"The agreement with ScanSoft, market share leader for voice recognition technology and a business expert for key industries, is the logical next step for VoiceObjects software technology. The combination of carrier grade server technologies for VAMS with ScanSoft’s technology and business market leadership is setting new standards and raising the bar. VoiceObjects X5, in combination with the OSDM integration, provides customers with openness and flexibility in this fast moving market,” said Christian Dugast, Head of Business Development at VoiceObjects.
