Brooktrout Technology Delivers All-in-One Telephony Platform for Microsoft Speech Server 2004 R2
NEEDHAM, Mass. - Brooktrout Technology, Inc. released its TR1000 for Microsoft Speech Server (MSS) 2004 R2. The product includes Brooktrout's TR1000 speech processing board, Telephony Interface Manager (TIM), drivers, configuration tools and a suite of management utilities for MSS 2004 R2. In addition, Brooktrout is expanding the sales channel of enabling technology for MSS 2004 R2 by offering its solution through Ingram Micro and Tech Data and working with its channel of over 3,000 VARs to help accelerate the market adoption for speech.
Brooktrout has obtained certifications for its telephony platform with Windows Server 2003 and WHQL. TR1000 for MSS has also been tested with MSS 2004 R2, providing support for Microsoft's latest release of Speech Server.
The TR1000 for MSS allows speech application developers to focus on application design by presenting an abstraction layer for the underlying telephony protocols that allows the Brooktrout TIM to manage all the telephony resources. The TIM controls communication between the TR1000 and telephone network, streams media for recognition and speech output, performs DTMF detection and processes all the call control.
Brooktrout is working with MSS partners including bridgeSpeak, Pronexus and Voice Automation to ensure compatibility with key features such as automated speech recognition (ASR), touchtone (DTMF) and text-to-speech (TTS).
