Voice Control Systems' Advanced Speech Recognition Technologies Added to the Dialogic Antares Platform.

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 11, 1997--

Alphanumeric Offering is First for Dialogic; Allows Developers to

Create Innovative, Speech-Enabled Applications

Voice Control Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:VCSI), a leading developer of speech recognition technology and speech software platforms, today announced the addition of VCS' Alphanumeric and PowerBundle speech recognition technologies to the Dialogic Antares(tm) DSP board, broadening VCS' deployment of advanced speech recognition technologies to the open computer telephony market.

The enhanced offering will give systems integrators and software developers even greater flexibility to create innovative, cost-effective, user-friendly, speech-enabled applications. VCS' Alphanumeric recognition on Antares, the first and only alphanumeric offering from Dialogic, can be integrated easily into applications requiring both discrete digit and letter recognition, such as over-the-telephone motor vehicle license registration or catalog ordering. The VCS PowerBundle package provides continuous speech recognition with speaker-dependent speech recognition for programming directories of names and phone numbers. These features are particularly valuable in applications such as call centers, voice mail systems, interactive voice response units and voice activated dialing (VAD). The PowerBundle feature set enables providers to reduce costs, enhance customer service and increase safety in VAD applications, providing cellular phone subscribers with hands-free and eyes-free dialing.

The robust architecture of the Antares platform and the modularity of the enhanced VCS speech recognition features allow developers to build scaleable solutions ranging from dual port nodes to high-density speech recognition servers.

"Our long-standing relationship with Voice Control Systems and its high-quality, field-proven speech recognition technology is enabling us to address customer demands for greater speech-enabled features on Antares," said Jason Livneh, product marketing manager, Dialogic Corporation. "With the Dialogic Antares platform as the base DSP resource board, developers can leverage a broad range of speech technologies to build more reliable and demanding voice-driven applications. The advanced features will free end-users from the telephone keypad and ultimately enable them to use the phone more productively."

"This enhanced package further demonstrates VCS' commitment to offering the broadest and most in-depth range of speech technologies," said Desmond Pieri, vice president of marketing, Voice Control Systems. "With the addition of our Alphanumeric recognition, the same capability featured in VCS' SpeechWave(tm) 1.0, and the PowerBundle on Dialogic's premiere board, Voice Control Systems is able to further expand its deployment of advanced speech recognition technology to a vast majority of the open computer telephony market."

Voice Control Systems is a leading speech software platform provider, offering vocabularies in over 50 languages with more than 2.5 million recognizers, including 500,000 in telecom, installed in 30 countries. Speech-driven applications using VCS products are used today in telecommunications, automotive, consumer electronics, and interactive multimedia software to enable computers and electronic devices to understand and process human speech. VCS is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, with regional offices in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Portsmouth, England. The company's stock is traded on the NASDAQ National Market System under the symbol VCSI. For more information visit the company's web site at http://www.voicecontrol.com .
