Lernout & Hauspie buys Dragon, hope for Mac?
In particular, it was said during the press conference, one of the short-term goals, that of bringing voice recognition also to devices that at the moment, for reasons of computing power or size, lack such devices as PDAs and the nascent market of smart phones. Let us remember that Dragon had announced and later deferred the development of a Mac version of Naturally Speaking. It is difficult to say how much it can influence in the perspective of a rethinking of this decision. A detail, however, gives hope that something can change in this regard. Lernout & Hauspie recently announced a new product for Mac, Kurzweil 3000, a software that can help students with reading and writing difficulties. (Thanks to Luca Bertolli)
