Hello Everyone,

Vestec recently launched a large vocabulary speech engine for 
"command-and-control" type IVR applications. The new engine - called 
Tier-2 - supports a vocabulary size of 2,500 keywords per recognition 
and complements our existing Tier-1 engine that has a 500 keywords 
vocabulary size. Tier-2 retails for $199 per port (ie. channel) while 
Tier-1 is priced at $99 per port. Acoustic models needs to be licensed 
separately at $9.99 per language.

Our ASR is designed for keywords-based interaction and offers the best 
deal around for speech enabling a wide variety of IVR applications, 
including DTMF menus and multi-step business processes. The speech 
engine is standards based in terms of grammar writing format and 
platform integration protocols. We support SRGS grammar (ABNF & XML) as 
well as MRCP integration (v1 & v2). In addition, we offer a highly 
scalable architecture that is capable of supporting thousands of ports 
in an efficient manner.

A starter kit - comprising a specially priced perpetual license for a 
full-function, full-feature standard ASR engine - is available for $25.
