Dragon Systems Brings Speech Recognition Software to the Macintosh

WWDC, SAN JOSE, Calif. and NEWTON, Mass. May 10, 1999 Dragon
Systems, Inc. and Apple Computer, Inc. today announced that Dragon
Systems will create and market Macintosh-compatible products based on
Dragon NaturallySpeaking, the top selling retail speech product in
the U.S.* Dragon Systems Chairman, CEO, and Co-Founder Janet Baker,
Ph.D. announced the companys plans during the keynote presentation
at Apples annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San
Jose.

It's great news for our customers that Dragon is bringing their
world-class speech recognition software out on Macintosh," said Steve
Jobs, Apple's interim CEO. The underlying architecture of the Mac
platform, with fast PowerPC processors and outstanding audio support,
will make Macintosh the premier platform for Dragon
NaturallySpeaking. Dragon's return to the Mac market is more evidence
of the great business opportunities available on Macintosh for
innovative developers.

We have received many requests for a Macintosh version of Dragon
NaturallySpeaking and working with Apple we're going to deliver a
high quality speech solution for Macintosh users, said Dragon
Systems Chairman, CEO, and Co-Founder Janet Baker, Ph.D. Over the
last year we have seen Apple bring out some very innovative products
and we think Dragon Systems will offer the ideal speech recognition
solution for anyone who wants to extend the capabilities of their
iMac, Power Macintosh G3, or PowerBook G3.

Dragon Systems products for the Macintosh are planned initially for
both American and British English, with the first U.S. product to be
released later this year. French, German, and Japanese are also
scheduled. Pricing, system requirements, and product specifications
will be announced at product introduction.

Dragon Systems has a long history of supporting products for the
Macintosh platform. Previously, Dragon Systems offered Dragon
PowerSecretary, a discrete recognition dictation system for the
Macintosh.
