ScanSoft and TeleMessage Partner to Power Rogers Wireless Text 2 Landline Service

Canada's Largest Telecom Provider Enables Consumers to Receive Text Messages on their Landline; Bridges Gap for Wireless and Wireline Users Throughout Subscriber Base

PEABODY, Mass and ACTON, Mass. -- January 25, 2005 - ScanSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSFT), the global leader of speech and imaging solutions, and TeleMessage, a leading developer of messaging solutions, today announced that Rogers Wireless has selected TeleMessage SMS to Landline solution, powered by ScanSoft RealSpeak, for its groundbreaking TXT 2 Landline service. With TXT 2 Landline, wireless users can discreetly communicate and send messages to anyone with a landline - a feature previously limited to other wireless users. Text messages are converted to a natural, high-quality voice with ScanSoft RealSpeak, and are read aloud to the user in English or French. For more information about this service, please visit www.rogers.com/txt2landline.

Text messaging has quickly become one of the most popular modes of wireless communication, and provides users with a discreet, non-intrusive way to communicate without using their voice - enabling real-time communication anytime, anywhere. Throughout North America alone, billions of text messages are sent each month, and until now, Canadian users were limited to communicating with other wireless users. With TXT 2 Landline, users can communicate directly and non-intrusively with friends and family who use a landline by simply typing a text message on their wireless phone and directing the message to the landline number. With the TeleMessage messaging application, the message is converted to speech using ScanSoft RealSpeak and delivered to the landline phone for pick up from the recipient, who will hear the message in a natural, conversational voice and even have the ability to reply via a voice message to the sender. The wireless caller receives detailed confirmation of message delivery - from time of pick-up to whether it was answered by a live person or an answering system. If a reply was sent, the sender can simply click a single button on his phone to dial in to a unique phone number to retrieve the message.

"Speech is a comfortable, equalizing interface that bridges the gap for many different users," said Peter Mahoney, vice president of worldwide marketing for SpeechWorks, a division of ScanSoft. "Text messaging is a powerful application ideally suited for speech, as it broadens its accessibility to all types of users, regardless of their device, and we are pleased to work with TeleMessage to deliver a compelling, logical solution to Rogers Wireless customers."
