Windows Mobile 6.5 to feature voice commands

Tellme Networks, a subsidiary of Microsoft, has announced that it will be including a utility in the forthcoming update to Microsoft's Windows Mobile, version 6.5. The new utility will offer a voice command facility that, says the company, will be available for free.


"Because it's so intuitive, we believe there is a real opportunity for voice to materialize as the leading user interface for the phone," said Dariusz Paczuski, senior director of consumer services at Tellme. "By bringing voice access to calling, texting and searching together we reduce 'menu surfing' on phones and make the convenience of voice more tangible for everyday needs."


Apparently, all you need to do is press a single button and issue your command such as search, text or make a call. So, for example, you would send a text by saying "text" to open a text box, then speak the text message and send to call anyone in the contact list.
