    MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 30, 2002--Nuance
    (Nasdaq:NUAN), the speech software experts, today announced that the
    company's speech recognition software has been selected for Adacel's
    MaxSim, the leading air traffic control simulator. This new
    voice-driven system will be used to train air traffic control
    personnel, including those in the U.S. military. Since November 2001,
    Adacel has been selected for North American civil and defense air
    traffic simulation and management systems worth over $100 million,
    including programs for the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, and the Federal
    Aviation Administration. The MaxSim product was developed in
    combination with Nuance partner Newfound Communications, Inc., a
    pioneer in VoiceXML-based speech technologies and services.
    Adacel MaxSim is a highly realistic training system that mimics
    the actual experience of an air traffic controller. Featuring computer
    generated radar screen images, MaxSim enables students to verbally
    guide aircrafts into and out of assigned radar sectors through the use
    of Nuance 8.0 speech recognition software. Newfound Communications
    worked with Adacel to achieve the multi-modal solution with
    unprecedented accuracy to recognize and instantly respond via visual
    changes in the radar images to the standard voice command and control
    phrases used by air traffic control operators, such as "sierra two
    six, you are number three to land; follow three eight five on
    downwind, over."
    "There are a number of challenges inherent in developing a
    speech-enabled air traffic control application such as Adacel MaxSim,
    such as the proper management of large and complex grammars," said
    Lionel Leveille, president and CEO of Adacel Inc. "We tested a number
    of speech solutions and found Newfound and Nuance to be the only
    providers that could deliver the speech recognition accuracy and
    system scalability we required."
    U.S. air traffic controllers ensure the safety of nearly two
    million aviation passengers per day -- or almost 700 million people
    per year. Control towers are stressful, high-energy environments where
    controllers know they do not have a margin for error. The
    Nuance-powered Adacel MaxSim simulator training system helps
    prospective air traffic controllers prepare for days full of
    fast-paced radio conversations with hundreds of aircraft flying high
    in the sky.
