Lernout & Hauspie Brings Continuous Dictation to Handheld Devices for the
First Time

Presentations at Demo 2000 Highlight How Speech Enhances Portable and Handheld Devices' Capabilities; Company
Demonstrates Industry's First Continuous Speech Dictation Engine for Handheld Device

INDIAN WELLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 7, 2000-- Lernout & Hauspie (NASDAQ: LHSP; EASDAQ: LHSP) (L&H(TM)) today showcased
solutions that highlight how it is moving speech and language technologies beyond the desktop to a growing number of handheld, mobile and wireless devices,
significantly increasing the ease of use and utility of those devices. L&H demonstrated an industry first: its prototype handheld device that has a large vocabulary
continuous speech dictation engine to easily send and receive e-mail, surf the Web and conduct e-commerce transactions. It also showcased a customer's solution
that combines L&H's speech user interface with a cordless phone system to allow small businesses and home offices to manage communications from any phone,
anywhere in the world. The demonstrations took place here in Indian Wells at the Demo 2000 conference, held from February 6th through 8th.

The solutions demonstrated by L&H at the Demo conference add to the growing number of handheld, portable and wireless platforms and devices that can be
speech enabled with L&H technologies. The L&H offerings have been designed to fill the growing need for a simplified input and output mechanism for devices with
limited display and input capacity and that are often used in situations where ``hands-free'' operation is required (such as an automobile).

``The small size and portability of PDAs, handheld and mobile devices has made them tremendously popular, and at the same time has provided a huge opportunity
for the speech industry,'' said Gaston Bastiaens, president and CEO of L&H. ``Most users employ handheld and mobile devices on the go, often requiring `hands
free' use. Most also find that manual information input and output is awkward because of the small size of handheld and mobile devices. The most intuitive, logical
solution to this dilemma is a speech-enabled interface that allows users and machines to communicate in a simple, natural, hands-free manner.''

Industry's First Large Vocabulary Speech for Linux PDA

While at the conference, L&H demonstrated its patent-pending, prototype handheld device for Linux platforms equipped with its large vocabulary speech
recognition engine - an industry first -and its L&H RealSpeak text-to-speech (TTS) technology engine. During the presentation L&H demonstrated how users can
employ the device to ``listen'' to e-mail summaries as well as full-text e-mails; issue natural language commands such as ``next message'' or ``send e-mail''; and
dictate e-mails. As part of its live presentation, L&H also demonstrated how its solutions allow a user with a wireless Web connection to make simple web queries
(``What is the Weather in Fresno''; complete an e-commerce transaction, such as purchasing a book from Amazon.com; and conduct a stock trade execution on
Etrade or Charles Schwab .com (``i.e. buy 200 share of Eink'').

``Speech User Interfaces (SUI) make PDA's easier and faster to use,'' said Amy Wohl, president of Wohl Associates. ``They provide an important interface option
for users and will expand the market to more users and applications.''

CyberGenie Uses Speech to Give Small Businesses Virtual Personal Assistant

L&H customer Cygnion Corporation demonstrated its CyberGenie CG 2400, a multi-line, multi-user, expandable PC Cordless Phone System. It uses an
L&H-based speech-enabled interface to help small offices and home offices cost effectively manage their communications from any phone, anywhere in the world.
CyberGenie's Virtual Personal Assistant system employs L&H's multi-lingual automatic speech recognition (ASR) and its TTS technology powered by
CyberGenie@Work software. This enables users to access their contact database via telephone, to receive notification anywhere in the world of voice mail, e-mail
and fax receipts and to have e-mail and faxes read to them in their originating language.

The CG 2400 also uses L&H's ASR and TTS technologies to support its voice activated or DTMF personal assistant, allowing calls placed to the small business to
be answered by the system and prompting the caller to simply speak the name of the person they wish to speak to.

Lernout & Hauspie Reports Strong Earnings, Splits Stock

Dow Jones Online News, Wednesday, February 09, 2000 at 21:04

NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- Lernout & Hauspie Speech Products NV, a Belgian developer of
speech-recognition software and related technologies, late Wednesday reported strong gains in
earnings and revenue for the fourth quarter and announced a 2-for-1 stock split.
Lernout & Hauspie (LHSP) said net income came to $10.6 million, or 18 cents a share on a
fully diluted basis, compared with $8.5 million, or 15 cents a diluted share, in the year-earlier period.
Revenue increased 44% to $110 million.
Making a comparison to analysts' estimates is difficult, because the latest results include an
"unrealized currency exchange loss." Excluding that item, Lernout & Hauspie said it would have
posted earnings of $13.4 million, or 22 cents a share. The mean estimate of analysts surveyed by
First Call was for a earnings of 20 cents a share but it is unclear if analysts stripped out the currency
item from their estimates.
Although the company's flagship Voice Express product, which transcribes voice dictation
simultaneously into typed text, faces stiff competition from Dragon Systems Inc.'s Naturally Speaking
and International Business Machines Corp.'s Via Voice, Lernout & Hauspie is without match in its two
other fields of expertise: computer translation and text-to-speech technology, whereby a computer
reads written text out loud.
And thanks to the types of software it pioneered, Lernout & Hauspie has the tools to become a
player on the Web, provided it executes properly. One of the two products on which Lernout &

Hauspie's fortunes will ride is RealSpeak, a piece of software that enables computers to read text with
a human-sounding voice, a feat that wasn't technologically possible as recently as a year ago.
RealSpeak's applications are manifold, but none is more tantalizing than the prospect of talking Web
sites.
Lernout & Hauspie's other potential silver bullet is the iTranslator, an Internet service that
translates documents on demand in 36 languages. After they have been machine-translated by a
computer, the documents get reviewed and fine-tuned by real-life translators. The great benefit of the
iTranslator is it allows rapid translation of documents that might take months to transcribe into other
languages.
Shares of Lernout & Hauspie rocketed earlier this week after it unveiled a prototype of a
handheld device with a "continuous speech dictation engine" for Web surfing and e-mail. The device
resembles a cell phone in size, but is flatter and includes a small screen, keyboard and pen. Lernout,
however, won't be manufacturing such devices and will remain a software concern.
