"Lernout & Hauspie demonstrated how its software can recognize and translate human speech and how that technology is moving from the desktop to platforms like handheld devices, information appliances and enterprise networks. For example, L&H unveiled plans to launch before the end of the year the L&H iTranslator Online, a Web-based, e-commerce translation service."

"At the show, Belgium-based L&H said it would support Linux developers that want to incorporate speech into their applications. To that end, the company is extending to the Linux operating system developers the L&H Voice Xpress Software Development Kit. L&H also said it inked a licensing pact with Symbian, the wireless consortium, to include L&H's International Correct Spell and the IntelliFinder reference engine for use in the Symbian platform."
