Microsoft talks up Pocket PC voice interface (version 1.5)

Microsoft has released software that allows users to control a Pocket PC using voice commands. Voice Command for the Pocket PC brings applications normally found on mobile phones to PDAs running Windows Mobile 2003. These include voice tag dialing, speech controlled navigation between menus, and application shortcuts such as asking: 'What's my calendar?' to get the day's schedule read out loud.

"Voice Command provides a significant improvement in speech software that is dramatically changing the way people will use their mobile devices," said Pieter Knook, senior vice president for mobile and embedded devices at Microsoft. "The product is a great example of how we are driving synergies between our platforms and devices business to create more powerful mobile experiences for our customers."
