For those of you with an interest in either Speech Server or Office Communications Server (the next version of LCS),  might like to know that Speech Server is being included as part of OCS and will discontinue as its own product.

More information can be found at http://www.internetnews.com/ent-news/article.php/3625381 and my feeling is this will make the features of Speech Server available to a lot more organisations than it was before.

More on this as I discover it :-)
