SpeechSwitch, Inc. & Tele-Communications, Inc. Complete Installation for Dayton International Airport

MATAWAN, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 21, 2007 -- SpeechSwitch, Inc. (OTCBB: SSWC), a leader in speech-recognition technology, announced today that the installation of a new communications system for the Dayton International Airport in Dayton, Ohio has been completed by Tele-Communications, Inc. ("TCI"). The new system incorporates a state of the art speech recognition auto attendant. Tele-Communications, Inc. ("TCI") 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 TCI's SMB business solution when customers request voice recognition. 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, digital, or TAPI WAV 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.

"This is the first of many deployments in our area and has enhanced our product line and will give our sales team a competitive edge when competing in the small to mid-sized market place," said John McGill, CEO of Tele-Communications, Inc.

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.

"The SMB market place is readily accepting speech recognition as the replacement for the dial by number auto attendants that are constantly being Zero'ed out. We are pleased to work with such a well respected and established firm as TCI Telecom that has seen the burgeoning future for speech recognition in the SMB market place," said Bruce Knef, CEO of SpeechSwitch, Inc.

About 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. 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 recently adapted our applications to integrate with different manufacturer telephone switches through the use of Telephony Application Program Interface or "TAPI." The use of TAPI, allows SpeechSwitch to integrate our applications into different telephone manufacturers Private Branch Exchange systems or "PBXs," eliminating the need for costly additional external hardware. 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
