iSpeak Brings Voice Commands to the iPhone
Fonix Speech announces the release of Fonix iSpeak - a voice activated application for the Apple iPhone 3G. Users can initiate several operations simply by speaking the command in natural language. Fonix iSpeak connects the user by just saying the phone number or by saying the name of a person in the contacts database. Additionally, users will be able to navigate their music libraries and launch a song or playlist simply by saying the name of the artist, song, or playlist.
Fonix iSpeak is the first of several anticipated product releases that support the growing mobile device and gaming industries and is at the core of the efforts of the company to focus its efforts on these markets.
The powerful and dynamic tools provided by Apple have allowed the Fonix team to quickly and efficiently develop Fonix iSpeak for the Apple iPhone 3G says D. Lynn Shepherd, Fonix Sr. VP product engineering. The feature rich iPhone is easy to use and our robust embedded speech interface will further create a positive and natural user-friendly environment which will further illustrate the dynamic features of this phone.
Fonix iSpeak, includes a run-time engine that sits on the phone allowing users to interact with the personal contents of their Apple iPhone. Unlike other voice applets that enable voice search of the Internet by sending commands over the airwaves, this client-side application gives users the power of voice interaction with their personal content and eliminates network latency.
Fonix iSpeak will be available for release directly from Fonix Speech Inc., and expects to be available through traditional Apple distribution channels. For more information, call (801) 553-6600 and say Sales for demos, availability and pricing.
