Symbol releases speech-recognition series of handhelds
Symbol Technologies, Inc. has introduced new speech-recognition enabled versions of its MC9000 series of mobile computers based on Windows CE operating system. Designed for warehouse and distribution customers that require hands-free operation for speech-recognition and voice-prompted applications, the MC9060-K and MC9060-S models deliver increased productivity and real-time data capture capabilities for enterprise mobility systems.

The Symbol MC9060 with speech-recognition combines Symbol's rugged hardware with partner software and accessories to offer increased productivity in industrial applications including distribution center order picking, receiving, replenishment, loading, maintenance, repair, package sorting and handling, returns processing and inspection. Symbol's new speech-recognition solution offers customers a multi-function device to support multiple data capture functions including voice-recognition, barcode scanning, imaging and keyboard input, providing flexibility to use whichever data capture technology is most efficient to perform the task at hand.

Warehouse workers benefit from increased mobility as they move from task to task listening to instructions through a headset and communicating verbally with an existing enterprise resource planning system (ERP) or warehouse management system (WMS) over a wireless network. Connection via the ERP or WMS also provides real-time views into speech-directed application data and operator activities for data reconciliation, updating and management. Using standard Symbol devices reduces the total-cost-of-ownership of voice-directed solutions by enabling multiple workers to share a single device.

Based on Symbol's flagship mobile computer platform, the MC9060 with voice-directed functionality offers integrated bar code scanning and local 802.11b wireless connectivity along with a drop specification of six feet to concrete.
