Vlingo brings speech navigation to Blackberry
Vlingo is a new speech recognition program for the Blackberry Pearl, Curve and 8800 series. It allows users to control many of the phone's applications simply with their voice. For example, the user can say "chili in Cincinnati, OH" and vlingo will search the web for results. More impressive is its ability to translate dictated messages, email, tasks and calendar appointments. We've seen other applications that do this, such as Voice Control for the Palm OS, but at least from the demos, vlingo seems to be a very accurate and easy to use solution. In addition, Yahoo has recently tapped the company to add speech recognition to their oneSearch application. Blackberry owners in the US and Canada can download the free program from vlingo.com.
