MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - August 10, 2010) - AppTek, a leader in human language technology (HLT), announced the availability of its automated speech recognition (ASR) engine for Spanish. The enhanced ASR engine also processes several other key languages such as Arabic, Farsi, Urdu, and Chinese and is compatible for use with machine translation, providing a complete solution for commercial customers and to the U.S. Government through AppTek's GSA schedule without integration costs or complex development.

The PlainSpeechâ„¢ Spanish telephony engine is a unique offering in the language technologies market because it is specifically engineered for the challenging content of unscripted natural language, dialect, slang, noise and other aspects of non-broadcast environments. AppTek's PlainSpeechâ„¢ telephony engine is unlike AppTek's broadcast audio version in that it is designed for different quality levels and also the challenges posed by unpredictable speech that is neither edited, rehearsed, or uniform.
