Microsoft updated its server software platform for speech-enabled applications this week with an R2 version of Microsoft Speech Server 2004.

The key new features of Microsoft Speech Server 2004 R2 are support for all-in-one server configurations and support for U.S. Spanish and Canadian French speakers at no extra cost in the original version designed for U.S. English speakers.

The new version also enjoys expanded telephony boards coverage and VoIP support from industry partners including Aculab, Brooktrout Inc., Eicon Networks and Vail Systems Inc.

Microsoft defines Speech Server as a Web-based, speech-enabled Interactive Voice Response and multimodal application solutions platform. The two core components of Speech Server are Telephony Application Services and Speech Engine Services.

The product originally shipped in March 2004 in both Standard and Enterprise editions.
