L&H: voice recognition company goes bust

"Lernout & Hauspie in Belgium has been declared bankrupt by the commercial court," a company spokesman said.
L&H decided not to appeal against the decision handed down by Judge Michel Handschoewerker in the court of Ieper, the western Belgian town where it has its European headquarters. Company representatives will meet with the five trustees and three commissioners appointed by the court to oversee the disposal of the company's assets.
L&H was a pioneer in the technology that allows people to give computers spoken commands. Last year a scandal about inflated sales figures in Asia erupted and forced the company to seek bankruptcy protection in Belgium and the United States.

What's up Robo Doc?

A five-minute vision test using a laptop computer with a touch-sensitive screen can be used on Earth and in space to help diagnose the onset of eye diseases and even certain types of brain tumors.
With one eye covered, a person sits in front of a computer screen divided into a grid. The subject stares at a central spot on the touch-sensitive screen and, using a finger, outlines missing areas of the grid. The computer records, processes and displays a 3-D image of the subject's visual field. The test for each eye takes about 4 to 5 minutes.
