Audiopoint, a speech applications company developing products for businesses that reach consumer markets and EarthLink, have signed an agreement that will give EarthLink's subscribers the ability to define their own News and Information Services leveraging Audiopoint's latest product release and speech application service.

Popular content such as Local News, Weather and Stock Quotes, amongst other personalized services, are now available from any telephone using simple voice commands.

"The demand is growing for powerful new communications services as a strategic way to enhance customer service and build a competitive edge," Brian Lichorowic, CEO & President of Audiopoint said.
"At the center stage of these new services is Audiopoint's next-generation Personal Voice Portal. Using PVP, Earthlink (News - Alert) customers will have a very real edge in the marketplace.
Today's announcement furthers Audiopoint's goal of providing our customers with the most progressive speech applications on the market today."

The new service provides an expanded access solution by voice enabling Web content for the individual subscriber.

"Earthlink's Email by Phone with enhanced News and Information services will allow our subscribers to access customized content from any phone just as they can from browsing the Internet." said Craig Forman, EarthLinks' EVP & Chief Product Officer.
