Wizzard Software Announces Addition of MRCP Version 2 Support to AT&T Natural Voices

PITTSBURGH — Wizzard Software (OTCBB: WIZD) announced today that Media Resource Control Protocol (MRCP) Version 2 support will soon be available for AT&T Natural Voices.  Heralded as the most natural-sounding synthesized speech system in the world, AT&T Natural Voices surpasses other speech engines on the market in performance, scalability and cost-per-channel. 

The addition of MRCP Version 2 support for AT&T Natural Voices is a major step in bringing this world class technology into the mainstream, standards-based Interactive Voice Response (IVR) market for developers who are looking for an exceptional, natural-sounding synthesized speech technology at a very competitive price. By supporting a highly popular industry standard, it will be easier for developers to compare and select the best speech technologies for their server-based applications, resulting in reduced deployment times and a more cost-effective way to combine multiple speech platforms.

"We are very pleased to add this significant enhancement to our AT&T Natural Voices offering," said Bruce Phifer General Manager of Wizzard's Technology and Services division.  "When combined with Natural Voices human-sounding and highly scalable characteristics, this addition makes for an incredible value for large scale IVR implementations."

"We invite companies who are not currently taking advantage of our low cost distribution model to visit our website or visit us next week at our booth at SpeechTEK 2006.  They can experience a demonstration and learn how it's possible to license volumes of one of the finest synthesized speech technologies in the world for under $100 per port," Phifer added.
