NORRIS COMMUNICATIONS INTRODUCES EAR PHONE(TM): HEADSET-FREE MICROPHONE/HANDSET SOLUTION FOR MACINTOSH

 NORRIS COMMUNICATIONS INTRODUCES EAR PHONE(TM):
 HEADSET-FREE MICROPHONE/HANDSET SOLUTION FOR MACINTOSH
 SAN JOSE, Calif., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Macintosh developers who implement voice processing as part of their applications now have an innovative and flexible way to capture voice commands. Norris Communications' Ear Phone(TM) is an all-in-one telephone handset that fits entirely in a user's ear -- thereby freeing users from cumbersome headsets and providing maximum mobility and comfort.
 Ear Phone transmits and receives voice input without an exterior microphone by relying on proprietary bone-conductive technology developed and patented by Norris Communications. Ear Phone picks up sound vibrations produced by the user's vocal cords thereby eliminating ambient noise and feedback.
 "Integration of voice-based technologies is growing by leaps and bounds," said President Elwood Norris. "Ear Phone gives Macintosh developers a more reliable method of processing instructions in voice applications. This technology can also be used as a 'hands-free' interface with telephones, modems and other communication devices."
 A uni-directional microphone version of Ear Phone will be available to OEMs and software developers this June. A bone-conduction model will be available next January. Both units will be priced under $150. At Apple Computer's Worldwide Developers Conference, Norris Communications is offering a free Ear Phone as part of its Partner Support Program.
 Norris Communications Corp. is based in Poway (San Diego), Calif. The company is a manufacturer of sophisticated electronic products for the telecommunications, aerospace, computer and medical industries. Norris Communications has two other subsidiaries: American Surface Mounted Devices Inc., which supplies robotic surface-mounting equipment; and Sage Microsystems which specializes in custom microbonding of silicon chips on printed circuit boards.
