RSI-UK Digest for 5 Mar 1999

For those of you who are interested in having continuous speech recognition and/or an alternative to Power Secretary available on the Mac, a company called MacSpeech is conducting a survey to gauge the market interest in such a program. The survey can be found at http://www.macspeech.com/

Answer 1: Just had a look at this site, still appears to be all talk (no pun intended!) with no real product in sight. The best thing appears to be their slogan  ‘Speak Different’!

Answer 2: These are apparently some Dragon people from Power Secretary – or whatever it was– trying to get a Mac system off of the ground. The main competition here is Apple itself as it is likely that Apple will come out with a speech interface for the Macs eventually; just as Windows is likely to do eventually.
