Advanced Voice Recognition Systems, Inc. owns a portfolio of patents and patent-pending applications related to speech recognition technologies. The company’s first US Patent #5,960,447 is for a word tagging and editing system for speech recognition. The patent includes 42 claims covering an extremely broad base of features applicable to existing automatic speech recognition (ASR) products and markets such as smartphones, language translation and large medical transcription systems.

Its second US Patent #7,558,730 covers a system for facilitating speech recognition and transcription among users employing protocols for generating, transcribing and exchanging speech. A third patent was granted to Advanced Voice Recognition Systems which is an extension of this patent. It is expected to improve the company’s efforts to monetize its assets in the rapidly growing voice recognition and transcription marketplace.

On March 9, 2010, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) declared an interference between the company as senior party and Allvoice Developments as junior party. An interference is a proceeding conducted by the USPTO in instances where two or more parties claim patent rights to the technology. The USPTO will determine which party invented the technology first and award the patent to that party.

On January 13, 2011, Oblon Spivak represented Advanced Voice Recognition Systems in the interference proceedings between the company and Allvoice. He delivered oral arguments before a three judge panel of the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences. Advanced Voice Recognition Systems hopes to receive a timely decision.
