GFT Group Selects Sony Microphone and Transmitter/Receiver for Petrana Product

GFT Group Inc. has selected a combination of the Sony wireless WCS-999 transmitter/receiver and the unidirectional Sony ECM-DM5P microphone as a Lavalier microphone for use with its Petrana speech recognition product, designed to eliminate the need to wear a headset.

Petrana is an artificial personal assistant who talks to the computer user in spoken English and operates computer applications for the user giving the user free use of his hands and freedom of movement. Petrana transforms a computer, computer projector, wireless microphone system, and speech-recognition software into a voice activated Home Theater System and wall display computer. Petrana enables the user to operate a voice activated wall display computer without a keyboard, mouse, or presentation control. The user can stand, stretch, walk around, even exercise or prepare food while using the computer.

The Petrana Voice Commands for DVD are the first component of Petrana available for purchase by the general public. The Petrana Voice Commands for DVD transform your computer into a voice activated Home Theater System.

The Petrana Voice Commands for DVD require Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional 7.0, 7.2, or 7.3. Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional 7.3 is recommended. The Petrana Voice Commands for DVD will not work with lesser versions of Dragon NaturallySpeaking such as the Standard or Preferred versions. The Petrana Voice Commands for DVD also require the InterVideo WinDVD 5 or 4 media player software. The InterVideo WinDVD 5 software is recommended. A computer fast enough to run both Dragon NaturallySpeaking and InterVideo WinDVD while playing back a DVD video is required. A clock speed of at least 1GHz is recommended.
