MacSpeech Dictate debuts

MacSpeech today debuted MacSpeech Dictate at Macworld Expo in San Francisco. The new speech recognition software for Mac enables Mac users to dictate directly to applications with little time training the software to recognize their voice. Training MacSpeech Dictate, up to a 99 percent accuracy level, generally takes less than five minutes, according to the company. MacSpeech Dictate is expected to ship by February 15th from $200. The software requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later as well as an Intel-based Mac, and upgrades for iListen users are available for $100.

"MacSpeech Dictate performs at the highest accuracy level on the market today," MacSpeech said. "Using the new MacSpeech Dictate, user-spoken commands are recognized separately from dictation, liberating the user from the need to tell the software to change modes, simplifying the experience."

MacSpeech Dictate is designed to deliver a Mac-like user experience, and conforms to behaviors already familiar to Mac owners. The software enables users to perform basic navigation on a Mac and control it with their voice using familiar commands like print, cut, copy, paste, and more. The underlying speech recognition and dictation technology is powered by dictation technology from Nuance Communications.
