"IBM's initial Linux offering will include a beta version of IBM ViaVoice Software Developers Kit (SDK) for Linux, IBM ViaVoice Run Time Kit for Linux and open source sample applications. These technologies provide the foundation for application developers to incorporate speech recognition technology into the next generation of applications. The initial beta version of ViaVoice engine and SDK for Linux is available in U.S. English. Red Hat Software will be the first to distribute IBM's speech technology as part of the company's Linux 6.0 Application CD(a), also announced today.
