Recent Updates:

Audiopoint, a speech
applications company developing products for businesses that reach consumer
markets, and EarthLink (Nasdaq: ELNK), one of the nation's leading Internet
service providers (ISPs), today announced an agreement that will give
EarthLink's subscribers the ability to define their own News and
Information Services leveraging Audiopoint's latest product release and
speech application service.

The popularity of EarthLink's Email By Phone has demonstrated that
people want access to a wider range of information on the go. News and
Information Services combines the existing functionality of Email By Phone
with natural voice-enabled Web content. Popular content such as Local News,
Weather and Stock Quotes, amongst other personalized services are now
available from any telephone using simple voice commands.

"The demand is growing for powerful new communications services as a
strategic way to enhance customer service and build a competitive edge,"
said Brian Lichorowic, CEO & President of Audiopoint. "At the center stage
of these new services is Audiopoint's next-generation Personal Voice
Portal. Using PVP, Earthlink customers will have a very real edge in the
marketplace. Today's announcement furthers Audiopoint's goal of providing
our customers with the most progressive speech applications on the market

The new service provides an expanded access solution by voice enabling
web content for the individual subscriber. Information is retrieved by
phone through a voice activated menu system. In its most generic sense a
voice portal can be defined as "speech-enabled access to Web-based
information." In other words, a voice portal provides telephone users with
a natural language interface to access and retrieve Web content.
