InternetSpeech.com, which is developing a service that lets people use voice commands to verbally surf the Web from any phone, retained Maita/Saviano Public Relations to handle its communications account.

InternetSpeech.com is a privately held company that plans to offer a service called “netECHO,” which uses speech recognition and text-to-speech technologies to let people access the Internet without a computer.

Users will be able to give voice commands to surf the Web, hear their email, send replies, search for and hear Web site information, even conduct e-commerce, from any phone, the company said. The netECHO service will be introduced nationwide in early 2000.

Emdad Khan, president and CEO of InternetSpeech.com, said the company selected Maita/Saviano because it has a reputation for responsiveness, and a track record of success with high-tech businesses. It also has an in-depth knowledge of telecommunications.

“We hear a lot about new ‘information appliances’ which promise consumers simple, easy access to the Internet, without a computer,” said Lou Saviano, a partner with Maita/Saviano.

“We’re excited about InternetSpeech.com because it will offer an easy-to-use audio Internet access service through a device everyone already uses everyday, the phone.”

Maita/Saviano LLC is a full-service strategic public relations firm that offers communications planning, media relations, marketing communications, employee communications, speechwriting, and, through its affiliates, advertising, corporate identity and Web design and management.
