Details Leak About Microsoft’s New Voice Recognition Software for Pocket PC

by Reads (4,665)

According to Handango, who let the cat out of the bag about a month early, “Voice Command will let Pocket PC users perform all basic functions–such as accessing calendar and contact information, placing phone calls and launching applications–by issuing voice commands. The software will also integrate with the handheld version of Microsoft’s Media Player to allow voice-activated control of digital music playback.”

This type of application sounds great, but I’ve not seen it implemented very well in the PC world yet. I certainly welcome the innovation though and hope it lives up to the expected hype come November 16th (the start of COMDEX). CNET has the full report.
