MacSpeech ships

MacSpeech today announced that its three-stage rollout of MacSpeech Dictate has begun, saying that pre-orders have shipped to iListen Founding Customers. MacSpeech's next objective is to ship crossgrades from customers who pre-ordered the product at MacWorld Expo, and then finally to various retail stores and resellers. In addition, MacSpeech also said that the application is available for pre-order from MacMall for customers in the US. MacSpeech Dictate is available for $200, featuring a choice of headsets.

MacSpeech Dictate is a new speech recognition product for the Mac, with underlying speech recognition powered by the dictation technology used in Dragon(R) NaturallySpeaking(R) from Nuance Communications, Inc. MacSpeech Dictate delivers a Mac user experience, and conforms to behaviors already familiar to Macintosh fans worldwide. Beyond dictation, MacSpeech Dictate lets people perform basic navigation of their Mac and control it with their voice using familiar commands like print, cut, copy, paste, etc.

Compatibility, Availability and Pricing
MacSpeech Dictate requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher, including Mac OS X 10.5, and requires Intel-based Macintosh hardware.

New MacSpeech Dictate solutions with a choice of headsets, will be priced starting at US$199. Registered customers of iListen will be eligible to purchase MacSpeech Dictate at special introductory crossgrade price of US$79 (regularly US$99). Anyone who purchased the MacSpeech product, iListen, in 2008, can crossgrade to MacSpeech Dictate for US$29 through April 15, 2008.
