Salem, NH, January 4, 2007: Macintosh speech recognition authority
MacSpeech Inc. has released new ScriptPaks for TopXNotes and
TopXNotes iPod, the popular notepad applications from Tropical
Software. The new ScriptPaks add almost 150 commands to iListen,
allowing users to do virtually anything in TopXNotes or TopXNotes
iPod they would normally do using the keyboard or menus.

“iListen is by far the best speech product ever created for
Macintosh,” said James Lee, President of Tropical Software. “It is
what we were striving for when my team ported ViaVoice to Macintosh
and what ViaVoice should have been. I am thrilled MacSpeech has
produced a ScriptPak to speech-enable TopXNotes and TopXNotes iPod.”
Mr. Lee was the coordinator of the team that developed ViaVoice for
Macintosh for IBM.

“I found TopXNotes iPod has been the absolute best way to sync notes
between your Mac and iPod,” said MacSpeech Chief Evangelist Chuck
Rogers. “Speech enabling it makes organizing your notes that much

ScriptPaks work with MacSpeech’s flagship product, iListen, whose
TalkAnywhere technology allows users to dictate anywhere they would
normally type. ScriptPaks enhance iListen’s Command & Control
capabilities by teaching it about the individual keyboard and menu
commands in a specific program. ScriptPaks only affect iListen’s
ability to control an application and are not required for dictation.

MacSpeech offers several iListen packages, including a software only
solution for $99, and a software and headset with microphone for $149.
