Good find! Voice Systems Technology, pretty cool. It shows company dissolution in 2019. Anybody know what is going on with the company?

That company dissolved (there was a previous one). Looking further down in the page shows activity in 2021, so I'm guessing that a new corporate entity was formed.

I was puzzled by this as well.

There's the patent (which doesn't show an address) and the lawsuit against Atago that lead to "VST is a Massachusetts corporation having its principal place of business at Harvard, Massachusetts, 01451." This is consistent with the data baldheadracing linked to.

Looking at the patent, it actually briefly expired according to https://patents.google.com/patent/US7952697B2/en
2019-07-08 LAPS Lapse for failure to pay maintenance fees
2020-02-24 PRDP Patent reinstated due to the acceptance of a late maintenance fee Effective date: 20200225

Current Assignee is shown on the Google page as Voice Systems Tech Inc

https://patents.justia.com/assignee/voi ... nology-inc suggests that there are several patents still assigned to Voice Systems Technology
