New York, September 14, 2004 — Pronexus Inc. and Vail Systems, two Microsoft Speech Server partners and leading providers of telephony and speech solutions, today announced the availability of ‘A SIP of Speech’, a unique software bundle aimed at developers exploring the growing opportunities for speech applications.

The combination of Pronexus VBSALT and the Vail SIP TIM on the Microsoft Speech Server platform lets developers rapidly create and test speech applications from a single workstation or a workstation/server combination, all without requiring any telephony hardware investment. In combination with one or two softphones, this effectively creates an end-to-end environment for speech application development and testing. ‘A SIP of speech’ allows developers to leverage existing programming skills and seamlessly connect to SIP-based IP telephony networks while evaluating the potential for speech in their respective organizations.

“We are pleased to offer developers ‘A SIP of speech’,” commented Gary T. Hannah, President and CEO of Pronexus Inc. “This bundle makes it easy for developers to experience the power of speech in their next-generation SIP-based IP telephony networks.”

”Vail is excited to partner with Pronexus to offer an end-to-end application development and testing environment for Microsoft Speech Server customers,”said James Whiteley, President and CEO of Vail Systems. “The Vail SIP TIM Developer Edition and VBSALT evaluation bundle, combined with a SIP softphone, allows for rapid application development and testing all from a single developer seat.”
