Operator Side to Feature Voice Recognition System

   ScanSoft announced today that SCEA Japan will be using its speech recognition system for the PlayStation 2 game Operator's Side.  Players will use a headset to interact with characters and the system features languages in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, and Korean. Also, according to ScanSoft, the system will be able to recognize the voices of men, women, and children.

   "We created a new level of realism in the gameplay by adopting speech recognition as the natural interface between the player and the gaming characters, bringing an unprecedented game experience to PlayStation 2 gamers," said Yasuhide Kobayashi, executive producer at SCEJ. "ScanSoft's Game Speech ASDK has proven to be a very flexible software development tool to incorporate speech recognition in PlayStation 2 titles."

   "Speech technologies continue to revolutionize player interaction for gaming applications," said Peter Hauser, senior vice president, international, at ScanSoft. "Operator's Side is an excellent example of how ScanSoft's speech technology, the power of the Sony PlayStation 2, and the creative skills of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan combine to enable an enhanced consumer experience. We look forward to working with Sony Entertainment as it develops new titles that incorporate this exciting new interface."
