Nuance Communications Inc. has announced that Rogers Wireless will soon offer Nuance Voice Control, a speech-enabled mobile search and messaging service, to its subscribers on select devices.
According to the company, the service will allow Rogers subscribers to press one-button on their mobile phone and simply speak a request, eliminating the need to fumble with tiny keypads or navigate complex menus to perform simple tasks.
Consumers can dictate and send e-mail or SMS messages, create calendar entries, dial a contact, and search the Web for business listings, news, weather, stock quotes, sport scores and more.
The service, which includes speech-enabled search and communications applications, is scheduled to start in May for a $6 monthly fee.
Simple and intuitive commands include:
* “Find business, Overnight Shipping, near Jacksonville, Fla.”
* “Call Jim Johnson at work”
* “Email Karen Smith. Subject: budget meeting. Body: The time has been changed to 2 p.m.”
* “Weather for Toronto”
* “Sports: hockey”
* “Top news stories”
* “Search Web for population of British Columbia”
