AOL has teamed up with speech recognition software developer Dragon Systems to test the technology over the Internet.
Under the terms of the deal, the two companies will work together to build speed recognition capabilities into AOL?s software and put AOL optimised features into Dragon?s products. It is best known for its entry level, continuous dictation product, Point & Speak.
The deal is expected to help accelerate the adoption of speech recognition technology for the Internet, while AOL hopes to gain more online users by making online access easier.
The two companies began working together in spring 1998 when AOL agreed to sell Point & Speak through its online service.
