June 13, 1997 - - Oklahoma City - -
SofTouch Systems, an advisory member of the Warpstock '97 steering
committee, is pleased to announce Aviar, Inc., will be attending the inaugural Warpstock
event to be held in Los Angeles, CA, October 24-26, 1997.
"We are looking forward to Warpstock, not only to demonstrate
our speech products, but to exchange ideas and suggestions with other OS/2 users
and speech application developers", said Dr. John J. Urbaniak, President of
Aviar, Inc, a Pittsburgh-based software company founded in 1984. "OS/2 is indeed
the platform for the nineties and beyond. We are happy to participate in such an
exciting, forward-looking event as Warpstock" Urbaniak added.
Aviar recently announced two fully speech-enabled applications
which complement OS/2 Warp 4: V Trex: " Information...at your COMMAND!"
for spoken, natural-language information retrieval with IBM's DB2 database product,
and DRAT! (Drug Review, Analysis and Testing) for speech-enabled manipulation of
employee drug test data. "We are currently working on a speech version of our
top-rated equipment maintenance product, the Ounce of Prevention System, to be released
Fall 1997," Dr. Urbaniak said.
"We believe that speech is the future of computer interfacing."
"OS/2, with its integrated VoiceType Dictation and Object REXX programming
language provides an outstanding platform for speech-enabled, real-world application
design and development", said Urbaniak.
