About eVt, in their own words (and their bios, in Word):

The ability to communicate has been one of the greatest and oldest boundaries that humanity has faced. Communication through language plays an integral part in activities ranging from receiving proper medical assistance to sharing ideas. Problems arise when language barriers or physical challenges prevent people from communicating their wishes or needs through language. eVt changes all of this. Those who formerly could not share their thoughts can use eVt as a medium for the transmission and expression of ideas. eVt is an application designed to enable the use of technologies such as speech-to-text, text-to-speech and language translation in series with such devices as Smartphones, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and laptops with the purpose of overcoming the boundaries of language.

eVt uses the key technologies Visual C#®, ASP.NET, Microsoft® .NET Framework 1.1, Microsoft Speech Application Software Developer Kit 5.1, Windows® XP Professional, Windows 2000 Server, Microsoft Windows Mobile™ 2003 for Pocket PC Software Development Kit.
