The Company

About Wizzard Software Corporation
WIZZARD SOFTWARE was founded in 1995 with a mission of becoming the leader in the speech recognition application development market.

The company was the first to launch a speech recognition e-mail product in 1997 and continues to maintain the industry lead in speech recognition applications for e-mail. Additionally, the company was the first to launch an interactive, conversational speech recognition product which allows the user to talk back and forth with their PC in real time. Wizzard Software now has over 25 speech recognition based products which interact with over 50 popular Windows applications, as well as the Internet. The company is aggressively working to add speech recognition to more software applications and hardware appliances making the use of technology easier and more productive for everyone.

Products

Wizzard Software helps businesses incorporate speech technology into their products and services. They offer expert programming and consulting speech based services centered around ever expanding relationships with IBM and AT&T. Wizzard has developed over 25 speech recognition-based products that interact with over 50 popular Windows applications, as well as the Internet. The company is aggressively working to add speech recognition to more software applications and hardware appliances making the use of technology easier and more productive for everyone. The following is a breakdown of Wizzard's products & services:

Voice Tools -
Wizzard provides programming tools, called Voice Tools, for software developers, allowing them to incorporate the speech technology of their choice in a quick and inexpensive fashion. Voice Tools have been distributed to over 100,000 programmers since their creation in 2000, and have resulted in the addition of speech technology to over 1,000 products to date.

Speech Services -
Wizzard provides support, customized programming and other speech-related services to businesses and software developers worldwide. These services compliment Wizzard's Voice Tools product line and allow Wizzard the opportunity to position the speech products Wizzard distributes for IBM and AT&T (for incorporation) into customers' products.

Speech Engines -
Wizzard distributes the IBM speech recognition engine and both IBM and AT&T Text-To-Speech engines. These engines are available in a variety of languages and dialects. The languages include: Cantonese, Danish, Japanese, Norwegian, Swedish, Taiwanese, Traditional Chinese, Castilian Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Canadian French, French, Finnish, German, Italian, Mexican Spanish, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, U.K. English and U.S. English.

MedivoxRx & Rex the Talking Pill Bottle -
Wizzard has recently announced the acquisition of MedivoxRx, a company that has worked for some time with Wizzard on the development of a "talking pill bottle." This bottle will be used by pharmacies to provide customers a TTS (text-to speech) representation of the text on the labels of their prescription bottles. This will prove a boon to the elderly and sick, who often have trouble reading the fine print on the label, resulting in them occasionally taking the wrong medication.

From 1990 until 1992, Mr. Spencer worked for John Valiant, Inc., and was responsible for business concept development and obtaining financing. Mr. Spencer's efforts combined an effective advertising/promotions campaign with proper timing in the young adult/college restaurant/nightclub market.

Mr. Spencer attended West Virginia University from 1987 to 1990.
