CoolSoft LLC Announces the Update of SpeakToText™ 2.5 Speech Recognition Version 2.51


SpeakToText 2.5 Voice Recognition Software Enables Users to dictate text into almost any application



Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 22, 2006 [CoolSoft, LLC] ( releases an update to SpeakToText™ 2.5 Speech Recognition, its flagship voice recognition software.  All previous versions of SpeakToText 2.0 and 2.5 now update to the new SpeakToText Version 2.51.


SpeakToText 2.5 Speech Recognition is a speech to text software solution that allows users to dictate text into almost any application, send chat messages and email hands free, create their own speech commands and recognize audio files they create on their PC or personal recorder.  SpeakToText 2.0 Speech Recognition software is a low cost speech recognition alternative that gives users much of the functionality of high-end voice recognition software at a fraction of the cost.


This latest update to SpeakToText Version 2.51 fixes several bugs and includes a major enhancement to User Commands that lets users create their own custom speech commands.  The User Commands feature now supports commands with parameters, enabling users to specify a file to be opened or a command to run when a speech command starts an application.  For example, a user can now create their own set of speech commands to run a home automation system such as modules in X10 Active Home Pro.

Among the many new features in this latest release of SpeakToText 2.5 Speech Recognition Version 2.51 are:
