Microsoft releases Voice Command and launches product's official web site
The Microsoft Voice Command software (review here) is now available on Handango, for US$39.95.

Microsoft posted some information about this software on Handango before the official release, and our review was mentioned on Slashdot.

The official website is now up and running, with more information, tips, troubleshooting and more on this software.

The Voice Command software uses Microsoft's next-generation phonetic speech-recognition technology, the result of 10 years of research, to make speech interaction simple, intuitive and practical. Voice Command allows users to use natural language to go directly to what's most important in a matter of seconds. The following key features are provided in Voice Command:

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

Microsoft's Automotive Business Unit developed Voice Command to address consumers' need to be safely connected while on the go. People want access to their personalized information, regardless of location, and research supports this trend. A recent survey revealed that 85 percent of U.S. cell phone owners and 50 percent of PDA owners use their devices while in the car.*

"We've been focused on providing improved communication, entertainment and information to drivers and passengers for the past decade," said Dick Brass, corporate vice president of Automotive Technologies at Microsoft. "No other company has the expertise and technical tools to provide a simple solution like Voice Command to the thousands who need safer, more convenient access to their personalized information both inside and outside the car."
