Enounce Announces MySpeed for the Mac Available in Limited Public Beta

Beta Testers to Receive 50% Discount Off Commercially Available Version

PALO ALTO, Calif. — April 13, 2010 — Enounce Incorporated (www.enounce.com) today announced that a pre-release version of MySpeed™ software for the Mac is now available in beta. Enounce’s patented MySpeed solution allows users to speed up or slow down the playback rate of Adobe’s Flash-formatted videos without any “chipmunk” quality to the sound. Users can change the playback speed of videos such as corporate training, educational courses and seminars, YouTube and more. The software is immediately available to a limited number of beta users. Beta users will receive a 50% discount off the commercially available version, paying only $14.99 for the software at release.

“Video plays a huge role for most Mac users. On top of all the entertainment-oriented videos out there, a significant number of students have standardized on the Mac for online education and training,” stated Don Hejna, president of Enounce. “The more time spent watching videos, the more dramatic the time savings.”

MySpeed benefits users by enabling them to:

  • Speed up videos to save time
  • Watch more videos in the same amount of time
  • Slow videos down to take notes or learn complex material or a foreign language

An easy-to-use MySpeed slider bar appears on a user’s desktop and allows real-time speed changes whenever a Flash-based video is playing in a web browser or standalone player. A Windows version of MySpeed is currently available. A free seven-day trial may be downloaded from the Enounce website so consumers can try before they buy. An enterprise version is also available so visitors of a website containing Flash video can control the speed of playback.

“One of our clients, Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co., LTD, recently standardized on Enounce MySpeed for corporate training,” said Jacob Koh, CEO of OLETS Pte., a leader in e-Learning solutions in Korea. “The productivity gains they’ve experienced are enormous as employees speed through familiar material and linger on more complex information. MySpeed is the perfect complement to any corporate e-learning initiative.”

Pricing, Availability and Specifications

The pre-release version of MySpeed for the Mac is available immediately as a free download from Enounce at www.enounce.com/download-myspeedmac. Beta testers will be given a 50% discount off the retail price of the commercially available software, expected to be available in May 2010 for $29.99. The software is compatible with OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or 10.6 (Snow Leopard), and works with Safari (32-bit mode) and Firefox 3.5 or later browsers.
