Scottsdale, AZ -- Advanced Voice Recognition Systems, Inc. ("AVRS") (OTCBB:AVOI) announced today that U.S. Patent No. 7,558,730 was issued from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. It is AVRS’s second patent for its enterprise speech recognition and transcription technology. AVRS is developing interface and application solutions for speech recognition technology that it believes will have significant market potential.
AVRS’ primary patent (U.S. Patent No. 5,960,447; Word Tagging and Editing System for Speech Recognition) advanced the speech recognition industry by allowing dictation into any application among the many benefits of this broad based speech recognition patent.
This new patent, U.S. Patent No. 7,558,730 for digital voice recognition and transcription technology is titled "Speech Recognition and Transcription Among Users Having Heterogeneous Protocols." It discloses a system for facilitating enterprise speech recognition and transcription among users employing incompatible protocols for generating, transcribing, and exchanging speech.
