Who Is Wizzard Software And What Do They Want From Podcasting?

Who is Wizzard software?

April 2004 – Wizzard buys a “Talking perscription bottle technology.” I’m not joking.

9/21/2006 – Wizzard buys SwitchPod.com.

10/26/2006 – Wizzard buys Libsyn.com.

Suddenly, a company we know very little about, owns a good chunk of the infrastructure of the “Podosphere.”

Who are these guys? From a press release:

Founded in 1996, Wizzard Software has become a leader in the speech technology application development market. Wizzard architects solutions to business problems using its expertise in consulting, speech development tools and building speech based applications for the Desktop and Internet. Wizzard has achieved global recognition because of its expertise with voice communication whether it is via computer or telephone. Wizzard’s successes have led to expanding speech technology opportunities in both the government and commercial sectors including several healthcare industry products and services. For more information, visit www.wizzardsoftware.com.

That’s pretty broad.

Spent some time at the site today and they seem to be all over the place.

Anybody know anything about these guys and what they’re trying to do with Podcasting?
