[Fonix DECtalk text-to-speech (TTS) is embedded on two new Casio handsets -- users texts word into phone and it 'speaks" words and sentences back in English. Handsets are available through Japanese carrier KDDI.]

Salt Lake City, UT -- Fonix Speech, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Fonix Corporation specializing in embedded speech interfaces for mobile devices, handheld electronic products, video game systems and processors, announces Fonix DECtalk text-to-speech (TTS) on two new dictionary-enabled mobile phones for the Japanese market introduced by Casio Hitachi Mobile Communications.

Casio Hitachi Mobile Communications' (CHMC) two new mobile phones -- the Casio W51CA and the Hitachi W51H, which are built on the BREW operating system -- feature Fonix text-to-speech and are now available for sale in Japan. Casio Soft integrated Fonix TTS into the Mobile Dictionary, which 'speaks' dictionary words and sentences to the user in English. Fonix receives unit royalties from the sale of each phone.

"These new Casio and Hitachi phones feature Fonix technology embedded directly on the devices," explains Walt Nawrocki, Senior VP and GM, Fonix Speech. "Casio Soft and CHMC have done a terrific job of engineering yet another way to incorporate TTS technology into a handheld device by combining a helpful e-dictionary and a mobile phone. We're expecting customers to readily accept these phones and create market demand for them."

The Casio W51CA and the Hitachi W51H are available in Japan through mobile carrier KDDI.
