 SIMPACT ASSOCIATES DELIVERS VOICE TO THE MICROSOFT WINDOWS DESKTOP
 CHICAGO, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at Windows World, Simpact Associates Inc. unveiled Remark!(TM) for Microsoft Windows(TM), a voice integration product that allows networked PC users to record, play and manage voice information as part of any Microsoft Windows application that supports Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) or Object Linking and Embedding (OLE).
 Users can voice annotate word processing documents and spreadsheets with verbal comments, voice script presentation graphics and capture conversations, such as conference calls. With Remark!, users can store voice information as part of an electronic document, move the document across the network and share the voice among multiple users.
 "Simpact's focus for 1992 is to deliver voice to every networked Microsoft Windows desktop in the world today," said David Brehe, Simpact vice president of voice integration products. "We plan to accomplish this goal by developing strong relationships with highly qualified OEMs and independent software vendors."
 Unlike other voice annotation solutions which require sound boards, microphones, and speakers, Remark! uses a LAN-based voice server and the existing telephone system to record and play voice messages through a standard telephone handset. This unique client/server approach eliminates the need for additional audio hardware for the PC and provides users with the benefits of a highly integrated system, including lower cost per desktop and easier implementation and maintenance.
 "The gating factor for many PC users and independent software vendors (ISV) who want to develop multimedia applications is the widespread deployment of multimedia-capable PCs," said Thomas J. Krier, Remark! product manager. "Using Remark! and their existing environment, PC users and ISVs alike can develop business applications that integrate text, graphics and voice now. And with our voice server's ability to convert voice files from various hardware platforms, they can be assured that the voice files they've recorded with Remark! can also be played on multimedia PCs. It's the best solution for a large environment where you're likely to find only a fraction of the users with multimedia- capable PCs."
 Remark! for Microsoft Windows is priced from $5,500 to $20,000, depending upon system configuration and the number of concurrent users. A typical configuration to support up to 100 users costs $10,500. Remark! for Microsoft Windows is currently available.
 Founded in 1972, and headquartered in San Diego, Simpact Associates is an information technology company providing computer products and services for voice processing and integration, connectivity and systems integration.
