 SIMPACT DESIGNS VOICE-ANNOTATION PACKAGE FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS
 WITH NATURAL MICROSYSTEMS' FOUR-PORT VBX 400 BOARDS
 NATICK, Mass., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Natural MicroSystems Corporation announces the integration of its VBX 400(tm) boards with Simpact Associates, Inc.'s Remark! for Microsoft Windows(tm), a voice annotation product that allows users to add voice information to Windows programs for a wide range of uses in business.
 Unlike other voice annotation packages, Remark! does not require the addition of speakers, microphones and/or sound boards into every PC in the organization. Instead, the system combines telephones and local area networks to provide easy, cost-effective applications.
 The four-port PC/AT-compatible VBX 400 boards from Natural MicroSystems have one DSP (digital signal processor) per port, advanced DSP algorithms for unsurpassed voice quality, high-performance DTMF detection, and advanced call progress analysis.
 Remark! for Microsoft Windows is the third voice annotation application from Simpact. In June 1991, Simpact introduced Remark! for Lotus Notes, and in November 1991 introduced Remark! for Hewlett Packard NewWave 3.0 for Windows. Natural MicroSystems' VBX 400 boards are being used in all three Remark! programs.
 "One reason we use Natural MicroSystems' boards is because of their complete support of OS/2 and client server architecture," Tom Drier, product manager for Simpact, said. "We've been impressed by the quality of boards. The OS/2 drivers and function libraries are bullet-proof."
 In order to record a voice message into a document using the Remark! program, the user positions the cursor in the document where the message is to be stored and selects the record option on the screen which causes the users' telephone to ring. The user picks up the phone and speaks into the receiver to record the message. The voice message becomes embedded in the document and is represented on the screen by a telephone icon. The recipient of the document plays back the voice message by clicking on the telephone icon. The recipient's telephone rings and by answering it, the user listens to the recorded message.
 John Desmond, Data Systems Manager for the Ohio Department of Transportation, Sidney, Ohio, uses Remark! for HP New Wave to create automated duty rosters. For example, a supervisor with crews in different areas can leave more detailed instructions without having to spend extensive time typing by adding voice notes to the roster. "Remark! has been an incredible time saver. The application adds a whole new level of information to our operations documents," said Desmond. "The quality of the voice is really excellent. It's very clear and sounds just like a regular telephone call. There's no distortion."
