Jul 29, 2014 - Ottawa based Parliant Corporation today introduces Echoes 1.0 for OS X. Echoes makes it easy to send quick voice announcements to other Macs running Echoes on your local network. Echoes puts an icon in your menu bar where you just choose "Announce," speak your announcement, and press return. Echoes can send announcements to a single person or to user-defined groups of people. Every Mac running Echoes can be a broadcaster or receiver, so replying is also quick and easy.
