VoiceSignal Announces Release of VSuite 3.1, the New Standard for Mobile Speech Solutions

VSuite 3.1 Offers Unprecedented Ease-Of-Task-Completion for End Users, Highly Portable and Scalable Client Architecture For Device Manufacturers

WOBURN, Mass., April 5 / -- VoiceSignal, the leading provider of speech solutions for mobile phones, today announced the release of VSuite 3.1, a major upgrade to the company's industry-leading VSuite speech platform for mobile phones. In addition to providing all the features of VSuite 2.1, including one-step dialing, command and control, and hands-free use, VSuite 3.1 includes dozens of usability and technology improvements that result in increased task completion rate and overall satisfaction, especially among users of mass-market phones who have never used voice recognition before.

VSuite 3.1 is the result of a multi-year technology development project in conjunction with extensive usability and user-experience testing that focused on entry-level mobile phone users unfamiliar with speaker-independent voice applications.

Kevin Burden, Senior Manager Mobile Devices of Telephia, in commenting on the new VSuite platform, said, "For years, VSuite has been the gold standard speech solution for mid- and high-tier phones, and these latest improvements demonstrate VoiceSignal's continued commitment to improving the user experience," he added, "these usability enhancements should have even greater appeal with typical users of entry-level phones who put an even greater value on simplicity, convenience, and ease of use."

In user trials performed on real mass market mobile phones running actual versions of VSuite 2.1 and 3.1., VSuite 3.1 showed the following improvements:

o 47% faster task completion time for first-time users

o 26% increase in users' perceived ease of use of VSuite

o 38% increase in users' perceived value of voice recognition

o Up to 75% more accurate

VSuite 3.1 is also the first product to be based on VoiceSignal's new mobile software architecture. Developed from the ground up over several years, VSuite 3.1 is designed to make VoiceSignal's client software more portable, scalable, and testable, while reducing utilization of memory on the mobile device. As a result of the new architecture, VSuite 3.1 offers:

o Significant reductions in memory consumption

o A new suite of documentation and developer tools

o A new suite of automated testing tools that allow customers to
regression test VSuite on the mobile device

o A simple upgrade path from previous versions of VSuite

o Greater portability between mobile phone software platforms

o Support for the mobile VSearch client application

Tom Lazay, Co-founder and Vice President of Product Management at VoiceSignal explained that, "The VSuite 3.1 software architecture was the result of 5 years of experience deploying VSuite into hundreds of mobile phone models." Lazay added, "The new architecture was designed from the ground up to handle the complex engineering issues we faced over the years, and will enable us to achieve faster time to market, reduced costs, and improved quality for our customers."

All of VoiceSignal's products, including VSpeak(TM) text-to-speech, VoiceMode(TM) dictation, and the VSearch(TM) client-server mobile search solution, take advantage of the new VSuite 3.1 platform.

VSuite 3.1 is available in 21 languages including US English, Canadian French, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, UK English, French, German, Italian, Castilian Spanish, Iberian Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Ukrainian, Mandarin (simplified and traditional), Cantonese (simplified and traditional), Korean, and Japanese.
