SpeechSwitch, Inc. Completes Reseller Agreement With ABC Telecom

MATAWAN, NJ--(Marketwire - June 7, 2007) - SpeechSwitch, Inc. (OTCBB: SSWC), a leader in speech-recognition technology, announced today that ABC Telecom ("ABC") has chosen to partner with SpeechSwitch for the deployment of a voice recognition solution. SpeechSwitch offers a turnkey Speech Enabled Auto Attendant. This system will be offered as the front end of ABC's SMB business solution. SpeechSwitch, Inc. ("SpeechSwitch") previously was a wholly owned subsidiary of iVoice, Inc. prior to the spin-off from iVoice that was completed in August 2005 as a special stock dividend distribution to iVoice shareholders.

The Speech Enabled Auto Attendant (SEAA) integrates into numerous product lines by analog or digital programming. The system facilitates easier communication for employees, customers, business partners and suppliers. It places people at ease by allowing callers to use their most natural form of communication -- their own voice -- to reach a specific person or department. By speaking a name, a caller can be promptly transferred to the appropriate number. Callers have the option of bypassing touch-tone menus and spell-by-name directories and instead, use their natural voice to reach their intended party.

"By partnering with SpeechSwitch, Inc., ABC will be able to offer the Speech Enabled Auto Attendant at pricing geared toward the smaller business owner. This will be another tool that will enhance our product line and give our sales team a competitive edge when competing in the small to mid-sized market place," said Andrew Burns, President of ABC Telecom.

The Speech Enabled Auto Attendant is a complete cost-effective solution that works with existing phone systems and voice mail packages. Every department and employee is accessible from one local or long-distance phone number. The SEAA capabilities ensure that all calls reach their intended destinations at all times.

"Today's competitive marketplace demands that businesses increase revenue while containing costs. Customers are using speech recognition to improve customer satisfaction and manage overhead. We are pleased to work with such a well respected and established firm as ABC Telecom," said Bruce Knef, CEO of SpeechSwitch, Inc.

About SpeechSwitch, Inc.:

SpeechSwitch (OTCBB: SSWC) previously was a wholly owned subsidiary of iVoice, Inc. prior to the spin-off from iVoice that was completed in August 2005 as a special stock dividend distribution to iVoice shareholders. SpeechSwitch, Inc. was incorporated in New Jersey on November 10, 2004 as a wholly owned subsidiary of iVoice, Inc. It is engaged in the design, manufacture, and marketing of specialized telecommunication equipment. Our products use standard open-architecture PC platforms and Microsoft Windows 2000 operating systems, thereby facilitating the rapid adoption of new PC-based technologies while reducing overall product costs. We concentrate our product development efforts on software rather than hardware because we believe that the most efficient way to create product value is to emphasize software solutions that meet customers' needs. We have traditionally used standard PC-related hardware components in our products, in part, to limit our need to manufacture components. Our manufacturing operations consist only of the installation of our proprietary software and, if required, a voice board, into a fully assembled PC system which we obtain from several different vendors. The Company obtains system components such as PCs, circuit boards, application cards, fax boards, and voice boards from various suppliers. Our flagship product is our Speech-enabled Auto Attendant product. Additional information about SpeechSwitch can be found online at www.speechswitch.com
