Recent Grants Cover Use of Voice in Mobile Advertising
LAS VEGAS--(Business Wire)--
VoiceBox Technologies Corp., the award-winning innovator of Voice Personal
Assistant applications built on its patented Conversational Voice technologies,
today announced that it was granted additional US Patents, including one
covering China, in the areas of mobile voice technology and advertising. These
grants further support the Company`s competitive advantage in the growing
Personal Assistant software market. To date, VoiceBox has had 26 patents issued
or allowed; and additional 11 patents are pending. 

The Company is showcasing product launches leveraging these patents in mobile
phone, smart TV, automotive and tablet markets at CES. 

While the use of voice as part of a device interface is just beginning to show
traction in the marketplace, VoiceBox was an early pioneer. Its founding vision
of a single, personalized interface utilizing a new generation of natural voice
technology across an ever-diversifying range of consumer devices remains the
foundation of the Company`s strategy and expanding product offerings. 

The recent patents extend this protection to mobile systems/applications,
including those in cars. "The patent processing time when we started was over
three years," said Mike Kennewick, CEO. "We`re happy to see the results - a
strong patent portfolio that perfectly aligns to the increasing consumer
interest in voice interfaces across devices. Expectations of increasing
personalization has driven the quickly emerging Personal Assistant trend,
leveraging our patented personalization and advertising capabilities." 

VoiceBox is used in products by brands such as Toyota, Lexus, Pioneer, Dodge,
TomTom, Chrysler, Renault, Fiat and Maserati worldwide in over 13 European and
Asian languages.
