Is voice becoming the new text (again)?Is voice becoming the new text (again)?


Mobile voice-recognition technology now allows people to send text messages to friends by talking instead of typing; to scan through transcriptions of voice mail instead of taking time to listen to them all; to tell their phones what they're looking for on the Web; and, soon, to post to Twitter from their cars by speaking, allowing drivers to keep their eyes on the road.

"It's now possible to pick up your phone and press a single button and say, 'I want the Yelp.com review of the Capital Grille in Burlington, Massachusetts. Period,' " said Vlad Sejnoha, chief speech scientist at Nuance Communications, a major producer of voice-to-text software.

Phones should know by now exactly what Web link to find, he said, and users should get a result without ever typing.  (Source: John D. Sutter, CNN)  For Windows Mobile users, check out Voice Command from Microsoft which has been recognizing speech and speaking text messages for years - Chris De Herrera.
