Advanced Voice Recognition Systems, Inc. Receives Notice of Allowance for Third Patent From the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - January 19, 2011) - Advanced Voice Recognition Systems, Inc. ("AVRS") (OTCBB: AVOI) announced today that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for AVRS' third patent for its speech recognition and transcription technology.

AVRS' primary patent (U.S. Patent No. 5,960,447; Word Tagging and Editing System for Speech Recognition) was granted in September 1999. AVRS' second patent (U.S. Patent No. 7,558,730; Speech Recognition and Transcription Among Users Having Heterogeneous Protocols) was granted in July 2009. AVRS's third patent, prosecuted by Meyer & Associates, LLC is to be issued in the spring for digital voice recognition and transcription technology entitled "Speech Recognition and Transcription Among Users Having Heterogeneous Protocols." The patent is an expansion of the coverage of AVRS's second patent and incorporates speech recognition and transcription among transcription engines employing incompatible protocols for generating, transcribing, and exchanging speech among users employing incompatible protocols. 

Additionally, on January 13, 2011 Charles Gholz and Todd Baker of Oblon Spivak, representing AVRS in the Interference proceedings between Allvoice Developments and AVRS, Inc., delivered oral arguments before a three judge panel of the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences (BPAI). The Company hopes to receive a timely decision.

President and CEO of AVRS Walter Geldenhuys stated, "I am proud of the dedication and hard work that Oblon Spivak, AVRS management and founders have done in the interference. The oral arguments were the culmination of thousands of hours of team effort. Ironically the Notice of Allowance for the third AVRS patent arrived on the same day. Our portfolio of intellectual property is the foundation of our business model. We believe this third patent will improve the efforts of AVRS to monetize its assets in the rapidly growing voice recognition and transcription marketplace."
