MacSpeech, Inc. will be demonstrating iDictate at Macworld this week. iDictate is a verbal text utility designed to allow direct speech translation to text on Mac OS X. IDictate will be priced cheaper than iListen but lacks some of the functions. According to MacSpeech:
Macworld Expo, San Francisco, CA, January 09, 2002: Macintosh speech recognition authority MacSpeech, Inc. today announced iDictate for Mac OS X, thus extending its TalkAnywhere technology to Appleis most recent operating system.
iDictate is designed as an introduction to the power of speech as a means to enter text into the computer. With iDictate, the user simply speaks where they used to type.
iDictate is similar to iListen but lacks many of the command and control functions. It will also be less expensive than iListen.
iDictate is being demonstrated at Macworld and will ship later this spring. As an introductory offer, all registered users of iListen will be able to download a Preview Release of iDictate for Mac OS X as soon as it is available later this month.
You can find more information about iDictate at the MacSpeech, Inc. Web site. iDictate will be available later this month.
