Fonix launches VoiceDial 2.0 for Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone Devices
Posted on 7-May-2004 07:56 | Tags Filed under: News



Fonix VoiceDial is a hands-free software application that enables users to simply speak the name or number to call, without pushing buttons or scrolling through menus. According to the company, the voice interface accurately recognizes spoken names and numbers, even in noisy environments. VoiceDial confirms user commands with our easy-to-understand text-to-speech (TTS). It is available for a range of Microsoft Windows Mobile based devices, including Pocket PC Phone Edition and Smartphones.

Fonix VoiceDial offers features including continuous dialing response (users speak at their usual speed and cadence), unlimited contact list size, customized pronunciation (improves accuracy where needed) and speaker independence (no voice training required).

"As we have worked with device manufacturers like Hitachi and HTC, their focus is on providing an easy-to-use, safe voice interface solution," said Tim K. Hong, vice president of Fonix Mobile Wireless. "VoiceDial's hallmark features are its high degree of accuracy in noisy environments and high intelligibility. With version 2.0, we've significantly optimized the product, making it even better."

VoiceDial 2.0 enhancements:

  • Customers may now choose from multiple languages including English, German, French and Spanish.
  • Version 2.0's support for both TTS and recorded prompts allows users to choose the most efficient and intelligible interface for their device.
  • This upgraded version supports screen rotation (either Landscape or Portrait display) for added convenience.
  • The VoiceDial 2.0 user interface is scalable for optimal device screen size.
  • Users can minimize the interface so that it does not obscure information on the screen.
  • Users can use their voice to access contacts on the device's SIM card as well as in their Contacts list.
  • Support for TTS on Smartphone devices. (Previously, the Smartphone version only allowed for recorded prompts, now TTS increases the usability for Smartphone users.)
  • VoiceDial 2.0 consolidates former Premium, Standard and Compact versions into one low-memory, cost-effective version.

    Fonix VoiceDial 2.0 is available for the following Pocket PC Phone Edition devices and Smartphones:

  • T-Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition
  • AT&T Siemens SX56
  • O2 XDA and XDA II
  • I-Mate Pocket PC
  • Dopod 696
