NuGram™ platform uniquely supports full grammar development and deployment lifecycle.

Nu Echo Inc., developers of high performance speech recognition applications and development tools, today announced that it will introduce the NuGram platform at the SpeechTEK 2008 conference and exhibition in New York City, August 18-20.

While there are numerous effective speech application service creation tools on the market today, the lack of an effective grammar development solution has traditionally presented a significant obstacle to the development of increasingly complex speech applications.

In response to this industry-redefining opportunity, Nu Echo is launching the NuGram platform. By enabling the development of both static and dynamic grammars, the NuGram platform provides a complete grammar solution that uniquely supports the full development and deployment lifecycle of speech recognition grammars.

The NuGram platform consists of two key components: NuGram™ IDE, an Eclipse-based grammar development environment, and NuGram™ Server, the dynamic grammar runtime solution.

The NuGram platform:

  • Provides a uniquely sophisticated grammar development environment with a complete suite of tools for developing, debugging, analyzing, and testing speech recognition grammars
  • Supports static and dynamic grammars in a uniform and consistent way
  • Supports all major speech recognition engines
  • Integrates with any application, regardless of development tools used
  • Functions with both speech and text applications - allowing for multi-channel applications

At SpeechTEK, Nu Echo will distribute a beta version of NuGram IDE on USB Flash drives, free of charge. Additionally, Nu Echo will provide online access to a hosted version of the NuGram Server, for demonstration and test purposes.

"The NuGram platform successfully bridges the gap between dialog implementation and grammar development," said Michael Codini, Chief Technology Officer, VoiceObjects. "Our developers have been using this platform for several months and we are excited about its support for industry standard Eclipse. Combined with VoiceObjects, we firmly believe that it has the capacity to radically improve the way speech recognition applications are developed and maintained."

General availability of NuGram IDE and NuGram Server will be rolled out by Q1 2009. NuGram IDE 'Basic Edition' will remain free of charge while NuGram IDE 'Professional Edition' will offer an enhanced feature set for a fee.
