Mobile speech recognition advances!

 AT&T Wireless announced today it has partnered with Barcelona, Spain based Code Factory to bring very advanced speech recognition services and highly advanced screen reader capability to AT&T Wireless phones.

 Code Factory's "Mobile Speak" is available for mobile phones using Symbian Operating System versions 6, 7, 8.x and 9.x running the Series 60 Edition interface; nearly all Windows Mobile Smartphones and Pocket PC's.

 Mobile Speak for Symbian-based mobile phones includes impressive controls for the Code Factory mobile screen readers such as:

  • "Commands that allow changing of important settings on the fly, such as keyboard echo, punctuation level, verbosity level, speech rate and volume."
  • "Commands for repeating or spelling the last spoken text, reading the whole screen or just parts of it like the softkeys, as well as interrupting speech output or toggling speech mute."
  • "Command Help Mode available anywhere on the phone."

 But these are only the true speech recognition commands; the overall speech interface for Mobile Speak itself offers a truly amazing set of features. The Mobile Speak for Windows Mobile Smartphones and Pocket PC's includes Microsoft Voice Command for wireless control of the device, whether or not a native recognizer is already present in the device.

 Additionally, the Mobile Tools product suite (which includes Mobile Speak) includes Remote Access applications that allow the users to remotely perform tasks on their mobile phones, even if a screen reader or screen magnifier is not yet installed.

 Code Factory boasts a rather admirable mission philosophy..

 "Some Mobile Tools are developed by Code Factory to meet specific needs of Mobile Speak and Mobile Magnifier users. Other Mobile Tools are applications from 3rd-party developers and then supported by Code Factory to work with our screen readers and screen magnifiers. Our goal is not limited to just making mainstream mobile technology accessible, but also to harness its full potential and offer users a multipurpose solution in one portable device."
