NetSage needs a US English linguist to work on an exciting
speech-recognition based hands free control system for a high-end German
performance automobile. We make socially intelligent interfaces for
automated systems. This interface is a driving assistant that responds
to voice commands for operating multiple aspects of the car system. As
part of our work, we need to construct grammars for the speech
recognition (we're using the Lernout and Hauspie speech recognizer)
which phonetically represent the sounds the driver will be making when
they utter a valid command. This is a rush project that we need help on
right away -- would be a few weeks for this project, could turn into a
longer term opportunity if the fit is right. 

NetSage is a hot, pre-IPO Internet company in San Francisco. All work
would be at our offices. Check out our website at www.netsage.com for
more background information.
