Task 8.2: Status

In February 1997, a spin-off company of FPMs was created: Babel technologies. Babel has already sold text to speech systems, and plans to sell speech recognition application based on an hybrid HMM/MLP system.

The ABBOT software originally developed by Cambridge University under the WERNICKE project was licensed to Softsound on 15 December 1996.
