Yahoo! enables search with voice

Yahoo! improved oneSearch service uses voice recognition technology to let mobile users search for anything from restaurants to sports results simply by speaking a connected word into the phone. According to Yahoo! the service adapts to your voice the more you use it.


For example, Yahoo! says that if a user speaks the word 'Arsenal', oneSearch will return a set of results including latest scores, breaking news, team profiles, images and web links. Users also have the choice of switching between speaking and typing at any time, so that they can refine queries.


Yahoo! oneSearch with voice is available as a download to RIM BlackBerry devices like the 8800 series, the Curve and the Pearl and can be intergrated as a shortcut into Nokia S60 devices.
