CeBIT: Cyber speech tools kill typing drudgery

Summary:German startup DictaNet Software made its maiden trip to CeBIT this week armed with software that combines speech recognition, workflow and Internet connectivity.

The company, which is planning a stock market listing "soon", works with OEM partners who integrate the software into their own products. It has integrated DictaNet with the more established PC-based Naturally Speaking from speech recognition pioneer Dragon Systems. The Web-enabled software converts speech into text either online as you work, or can hold it in the background for transfer at a later time.

Web-enabling the software offers a cheaper, more efficient way to disseminate the text, the company claims.
