LumenVox Announces New Spanish Language
Model for Speech-enabled Asterisk Solutions

San Diego, CA (March 20th, 2007) — LumenVox, an innovator in speech recognition technology, announced today at VON support for South American and Mexican Spanish language dialects in their Speech Engine v7.5. These new language models enable Asterisk developers in Spanish speaking countries to leverage LumenVox speech recognition technology by building speech-enabled applications that are localized for their markets.

"The number of Spanish speakers who come into contact with an Asterisk PBX, either through a customer service application or a call router, is clearly growing. With these types of applications, the case for speech recognition is strong, and our technology and language models are now there to meet the demand," said Gerd Graumann, Director of Business Development at LumenVox.

Jim Webster, Director of Software Technologies at Digium, said, "The Asterisk community in Latin and South America is large and quite active, and we view them as important to our growth. With the addition of the LumenVox Speech Engine for Spanish and its Asterisk connector bridge from Digium, speech-based Asterisk solutions will proliferate and expand Asterisk's presence in those markets."

The LumenVox Speech Engine is the core speech recognition technology that handles the recognition of words and phrases. Currently supported languages are US, UK, Australian and New Zealand English, Canadian French, and the new Spanish dialects. The Speech Engine is directly and seamlessly integrated with the Asterisk platform. Speech applications can be written in Dial Plan, Java and VXML.
