Many of us can remember the Conversay speech-driven browser, circa the late 1990's, and now the terrific Windows Vista recognizer allows us to surf the Web easily - but both were/are PC based interfaces.
In a Slashdot article today, Mr. Shoemaker is quoted as saying:
"Voice, too, is finally beginning to play a significant role as an interface tool in a new generation of consumer-oriented wireless handsets. Many technologists now believe that hunting and pecking on the tiny keyboards of cellphones and P.D.A.'s will quickly give way to voice commands that will return map, text and other data displayed visually on small screens."
Mobile web surfing, by speech?
All we can say is... "Let's get started!"
