Yahoo adds voice search

Posted on Thursday, April 03 2008 @ 20:46:30 CEST by


Yahoo unveiled a new feature for mobile phone users that makes it possible to scour the web with your voice:
Yahoo on Wednesday became the first major search engine to let people search the Web by talking to a mobile device.

Marco Boerries, an executive vice president, said technology from vlingo, a start-up based in Cambridge, Mass., would allow people who have BlackBerry Curves, Pearls or the 8800 series to scour the Web with their voice, using Yahoo's mobile search engine, known as oneSearch. Yahoo is working to make the service available on other mobile devices and overseas.

"We are fundamentally changing the way consumers use the Internet on their mobile phones," Boerries said during a keynote at the CTIA Wireless conference in Las Vegas.

Dave Grannon, chief executive of vlingo, said the service can handle any spoken query. It is also built to adapt to a person's voice and to improve over time, he said.
