VITO VoiceDialer Comes in Time to Call Santa

Voice dialing can be that easy and joyful!

VITO Technology announces a new version of VITO VoiceDialer, efficient solution for voice dialing on the go for your Pocket PC and Smartphone. VITO VoiceDialer v. 4.05 has become more convenient, especially for serious users like businessmen.

With VITO VoiceDialer you can assign voice commands to all phone numbers from your Contacts. Improved voice recognition engine originally developed by VITO Technology provides precise and accurate voice recognition even in poor conditions. All voice commands can be easily backed up to storage card in case you need to do hard reset. VoiceDialer supports several skins for you to customize it the way you like.

New version of VITO VoiceDialer has become more user-friendly: it offers you to record you voice commands when you have none; now you can also assign voice command from standard Contacts. Scrolling a long list of contacts has become quicker: press left or right to jump over ten contacts at once.

Other features in VITO VoiceDialer v 4.05 were inspired by our serious customers. Now you can choose to turn off entertaining sounds played while recognizing voice command. It is also possible to turn off playing aloud recognized voice command. Another useful feature is to have VITO VoiceDialer wait until you confirm that a voice command has been recognized correctly. VITO VoiceDialer is available for $ 15.95 at www.vitotechnology.com.  (Source: Press Release)

SAPIE, a first ever Personal A.I. secretary is released by Speereo Software UK

SAPIE, a first ever Personal A.I. secretary is designed to fulfill the whole range of secretary duties. It was raised under strict supervision in Speereo Software Labs. It can be installed on your handheld device to help you maintain your agenda, contacts, tasks and email accounts.

We’ve taught her to recognize a number of speech commands telling her how to respond. It’s useless to discuss poetry with her. She’s able to understand only the duty-related tasks. For example, to remind you of the events keeping your schedule clear, to record your contacts connecting you with them if needed, to send letters you’ve dictated to her, to note your progress in various projects. That is to say all the duties of a usual secretary.

SAPIE is based on Speereo Speech Recognition technology (SSR) that offers you 99,9% accuracy and speaker-independency. SAPIE is able to maintain a natural dialogue with you, so you can now carry your briefcase or drive a car while speaking to your personal adviser. Don’t bother and don’t tap the screen.

Since SAPIE is an artificial intelligence unit, you can teach her custom commands according to his own needs. One phrase to launch SAPIE, another phrase to record a reminder. SAPIE is obviously time-effective.

Compared to human beings, SAPIE has lots of advantages; she never sleeps, she is never in poor health, she works for a song. Her current level of sophistication doesn’t allow you to dictate neither poems nor legal documents. However, she copes with her tasks well.

The only prerequisite you’re required to learn are the four starting phrases. Then just let SAPIE ask you the details. These dialogs are close to human ones. All the necessary information will be shown on the display. Spend a couple of minutes when getting started and SAPIE will know when YOUR morning starts, what communication style you prefer. Afterwards, you could just pronounce something like: “remind me to call my partner tomorrow after lunch”. And she’ll understand you right away!

SAPIE. More human than one can imagine.

SAPIE is designed for Pocket PC (Windows Mobile 5.0, Windows Mobile 5.0 Phone Edition, Windows Mobile 5.0, Premium Edition Windows Mobile 2003, Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, Windows Mobile 2003 Phone Edition).  (Source: Press Release)
