MacSpeech Acquired by Nuance
MacSpeech has been acquired by Nuance, the firm from which MacSpeech licensed the voice-recognition engine that powers MacSpeech Dictate. MacSpeech had built its own interface and processing wrapper around the engine, which was somewhat different and not yet as full featured as Nuance's Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Nuance also offers a set of iPhone apps.
Maybe they won't have to sell MacSpeech for twice what Nuance charges for Dragon Naturally Speaking to depreciate the licensing fee. Or is MacSpeech the high end version thereof? It has never been clear while Nuance needs to improve its customer service.
