Not Really Furby Phones

from the WAP-should-have-a-health-warning-attached dept

Voice Signal Technologies has been involved with various speech recognition products (including the infamous Furby dolls). They now plan on doing something that I, personally, find very exciting: allowing individuals to surf the net on their mobile phone using speech recognition rather than their keypads. If they can get anywhere close to an accurate speech recognition program, I’m sure they’ll increase mobile surfing. However, if they happen to just match current mobile phone voice recognition standards it’ll just continue to frustrate WAP users (which won’t be anything new, as I’ve increasingly become aware of!).
