Microsoft soon to extend its Voice Recognition feature in Windows Phone 7

Microsoft soon to extend its Voice Recognition feature in Windows Phone 7Microsoft plans to offer cloud-based speech recognition technology in its upcoming handset, in order to have an edge over its rivals.

It is stated that the IT giant will be relying upon its Tellme cloud-based voice recognition and natural language processing service in order to offer better user-interface abilities in its upcoming Windows Phone 7. Microsoft had bought Tellme Networks in 2007.

Zig Serafin, general manager of United Microsoft communications said, "When you move to a device that doesn't have a large keyboard, voice is such a compelling complement to that experience. We believe speech is not a separate application. Rather it is an integral part of the user experience," at the SpeechTEK 2010 conference in New York.

The firm added that soon after the launch of the voice recognition technology, Microsoft aims to bring in a technology that not only is offered by the rivals but also by the rival's phone makers such as Apple and Google.
