Talking Technologies Announces the Completion of 4 Key Software Products That Revolutionize the Way We Communicate in Foreign Languages

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - October 19, 2007) - Nettel Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: NTTL) division, Talking Technologies, announces the completion of 4 key software products that revolutionize the way we communicate in foreign languages.

Virtual Interpreter Version 1.0

Virtual Interpreter is the ultimate breakthrough of an advanced version of the Global Translator. This revolutionary solution makes it possible to use any telephone for interpretation. With Virtual Interpreter no PC or PDA is needed. It is a complete speech recognition application that lets you talk through your telephone, resulting in higher productivity.

Using only a regular analog or digital telephone, Virtual Interpreter allows users to directly communicate with others in real time even though they do not share a common language. The system allows users to speak another language as if they were born into it.

With the premium version, the user doesn't need to memorize any pre-recorded words or phrases. It provides bi-directional real-time, interactive language translation and interpretation of any words or phrases. You say a word or phrase in English, and the system recognizes what you say and pronounces the other language translation of the word or phrase. In addition, the Virtual Interpreter will work in the reverse direction. When a foreign language is spoken, you will hear the English translation. The premium version speech-to-speech engine creates a human vocal tract simulation by modeling the sounds of the native language. The current version is able to translate to/from English, Chinese, French, German, Spanish, Korean, and Japanese. We are currently working on adding additional languages.

The Virtual Interpreter is divided into 4 separate products:

1) The Virtual Interpreter Face to Face Edition allows more than one user in the same room to directly communicate with others in real time even though they do not share a common language.

2) The Virtual Interpreter Teleconference version allows more than two users in a conference call to directly communicate with others in real time even though they do not share a common language. This version is currently in the beta testing phase.

3) The Virtual Interpreter Long Distance version allows users from two different countries to directly communicate with others in real time via a telephone line, even though they do not share a common language. This version is currently in the beta testing phase.

4) The Virtual Dictation Interpreter version: Using any telephone, users can dictate letters, memos, and email messages using their own voice without the necessity of slow-typing. Virtual Dictation does the typing. Now, you can write letters, term papers, emails, chat messages, and many other things just by speaking into a telephone.

Talking Technologies Global Instant Translator software engine meets every translation challenge on every level. Its global broadcast feature allows you to address multiple parties at once in different languages. Virtual Interpreter makes use of phones that are available just about everywhere in the world, are always on, and don't have to be booted up. It is an essential tool for people from all walks of life, including businessmen, students, educators, writers, lawyers, law enforcement, hospital, retail stores, travel agencies, governmental organizations, and all military personnel stationed in a foreign country.
