MacSpeech Releases Office 2004 ScriptPak for iListen

MacSpeech has released an iListen ScriptPak for Microsoft Office 2004. The US$59 add-on offers more than 1,000 Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Entourage keyboard shortcuts and menu commands that users can activate by speaking them into a microphone. It is a bundle of the ScriptPaks previously released separately for the applications -- according to MacSpeech, it offers nearly $50 in savings over buying them individually.

iListen 1.6.8 or higher is required. The software sells for $99, with a bundle including a microphone-equipped headset available for $149.
