ScanSoft OpenSpeech Dialog Wins Prestigious Industry Award

Leading Edge Advanced Dialog Manager Enhances Interoperability, Enables Flexible, Conversational Speech Applications

Peabody, MASS. March 22, 2005 – ScanSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSFT), the global leader of speech and imaging solutions, today announced that OpenSpeech® Dialog, its revolutionary dialog manager that enables more efficient, rapid development of intelligent speech applications, has won an AVIOS-SpeechTEK 2005 Award in the "Best Tools" category. Designed to be integrated into partner tools and platforms, OpenSpeech Dialog is ScanSoft’s reference implementation of xHMI™, an open dialog configuration language, and enables businesses to reduce costs, risk and time-to-market while enabling more natural and powerful speech applications that fit seamlessly into existing operations and skill sets.

OpenSpeech Dialog provides support for next-generation dialogs and has a host of features that enable intelligent, conversational applications to be developed economically – an industry first. By leveraging OpenSpeech Dialog, applications can allow callers to provide more open-ended and natural input, generate responses dynamically based on information received from the caller, and make confirmations and corrections more naturally and efficiently. The result is a more natural, pleasing, and efficient conversation.

"As we move toward a future where speech will become the expected interface for automated customer interactions, applications need to be comfortable and easy to use," said Peter Mahoney, vice president of worldwide marketing for SpeechWorks, a division of ScanSoft. "This award validates our belief that our technologies and solutions such as OpenSpeech Dialog will enable organizations to deliver the most conversational, natural speech applications to enable customers to enjoy their service interactions."

Award winners were selected by a panel of expert judges attending the recent AVIOS-SpeechTEK conference. Judges looked not only for cutting-edge technology, but also for overall business value for each of the technologies.
