Vocalis talks the walk

Technology over here, going over there

By Tim Richardson, 12 Oct 2000

Cambridge-based Vocalis Group plc is to export its natty speech technology to a gaggle of ISPs in the US.

A deal announced today with the American Alliance of Service Providers - an organisation of some 200 ISPs - means that the AASP will be able to offer Vocalis SpeechMail to its broad customer base.

Vocalis has also convinced a string of other US ISPs - including Destiny PC, Clear Connections, Fastex, Village Online, Alti.Net, HiPlains.Net, TexasFamily.Net, Konx.net, EON LLC, Quik Internet and Windmill.Net - to offer SpeechMail.

The speech technology gives users phone access to their email accounts, enabling them to send and retrieve email messages using a combination of speech recognition and text-to-speech technologies to manage email without a computer or direct Internet access.

Shares in Vocalis rose slightly in early morning trading. ®
