incompatibility with the new version of web kit that is installed with
Safari 3.0.

– The MSSupport program has been modified to provide a better user
interface and more information for our technical support team.

– We made a small change to the search routines iListen uses to locate
existing Voice Profiles to prevent it from timing out when searching
folders with many nested folders inside them.

– WAV files will now be correctly recognized on Intel Macs when the
optional TranscriptionPak is installed

– Added a new MacSpeech QuickPick for Apple’s Backup program that allows
..Mac users to easily backup their iListen Voice Profile Packages to their
iDisk. This QuickPick can be found inside the Extras folder on the iListen
CD or disk image.
