Lehrbaum sees good reasons to look at providing real estate for Firewire.” First, he said, IDE has advanced so much that SCSI has become a little less significant, and SCSI never panned out as small computer-system interface. It's been mostly a drive interface, so it begins to lose desirability as soon as you have real good IDE performance.” Firewire, he said, could hopefully become what SCSI was meant to be.”

Natural-language speech systems replace touch-tone dial systems for applications like phone banking by selecting key words and phrases that users speak in a natural voice, like I want to open a new account.”

Both companies will grant licensing and distribution rights to participating telephony and IVR platform providers.

The combined Unisys-Lucent solution, will allow developers to extend the user interface from the conventional 0 to 9 and *, # to an almost unlimited number of spoken choices. This is done through a set of development tools provided by the speech assistant tool kit. The tool kit generates the code required to allow the Lucent ASR to recognize what a person has said and turn it into text. The Unisys NL Speech Assistant then interprets that text into a specific response.

Telephony grammars look like 1960's Fortran code, archaic and difficult to document,” said Unisys' Barchard. Our tool gives it a spreadsheet approach.”

The agreement represents the first time Unisys will integrate a text-to-speech engine with its natural-language development tool. Unisys is working with Philips Speech Processing to integrate Philips' SpeechPearl automated speech recognizer engine with the natural-language tool kit.

Unisys developed the natural-language tool kit to be platform- and recognition-engine-independent when it was introduced in December 1997.

But Bill Meisel, president of TMA Associates (Tarzana, Calif.), a speech-technology research and consulting firm, suggested Unisys' agreement to integrate Philips' and Lucent's speech engines with its natural-language tool kit indicate Unisys wants to be the universal tool kit for such development so that developers need not relearn a new tool kit when they want to use different speech engines.

Lucent's TTS engine contains logic to support accurate pronunciation of names, addresses, numbers, date and time, as well as context-sensitive abbreviation expansion. The TTS playback includes male and female voices at both 8 kHz and 11 kHz and supports adjustment of speed, volume, pitch and vocal-tract size. The Lucent TTS Engine supports American English, German, and Mexican Spanish. Lucent indicates the engine will soon handle French, Castilian Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese.

The Lucent ASR engine supports speaker-independent, continuous speech recognition and run-time vocabulary change. Both subword (phonetic) models and whole-word models are supported. The engine can reject out-of-vocabulary utterances and offers a fully optimized SAPI-compliant grammar compiler. The speech-recognition engine uses 32 Mbytes of RAM and requires a 166-MHz Intel Pentium Pro processor. It is available in English and Spanish, with other languages planned.

In 1994, the Taiwan government spun off the lab, creating a new, independent DRAM company. Vanguard eventually started up Taiwan's first 8-inch wafer fab.

Meanwhile, in the past year or so, Taiwan's DRAM industry has taken a major hit following a downturn in the worldwide memory market. Every Taiwan DRAM company is losing money.

Even TSMC, which has been racking up record profits and sales, has taken a minor hit due to its DRAM exposure fromn Vanguard. But Y.C. Huang, vice president of TSMC, denied the company unloaded a small percentage of Vanguard's stock to reduce its exposure to those losses.

This is a business strategy to reinforce VISC's relationship with Etron,” he said.
