Lernout & Hauspie Speech Products, or L&H, was a leading Belgium-based speech recognition technology company, founded by Jo Lernout and Pol Hauspie, that went bankrupt in 2001. The company was based in Ypres, Flanders, in what was then called the Flanders Language Valley (mimicking the Silicon Valley).

Lernout and Hauspie is now used in the "Speech" option in the control panel of Microsoft Windows XP and is abbreviated as LH.
