Part 1:         Exclusive Territory: None

Note:  The Licensee desires that Exclusive territory be revisited at a future
date with a view to making this license exclusive to body-worn voice-activated
computers. Should the Licensor wish to give a License to a competing
manufacturer of such equipment before such an agreement is in place, then the
Licensor will review this with the Licensee to provide a reasonable opportunity
to negotiate such exclusivity.

3. A further fee of $200,000 within 60 days of the IPO planned for March 1996. 
Upon payment of this but not before, the total fee of $250,000 will be deemed

currently agreed value accruing to the Licensor.

entitles the end-user to 2 (two) authoring licenses and 5 (five) run-time
licenses for the software.
