Speakables for iTunes

Speakables, a voice recognition software company with offerings tailored to entertainment applications for the digital home, announced the release of for Mac OS X. Developed by speech recognition experts (including a key developer of Apple's Speech Recognition technology), Speakables for iTunes enables users to launch iTunes playlists by simply speaking the name the playlist. It works with Speakable Items, Apple's voice recognition application, already included in the Mac OS X platform. Previously, users were only able to launch individual songs but not entire playlists, podcasts or radio stations by voice. It is available immediately for $10. (The company's website offers instructions on how to activate the built-in Mac OS X Speakable Items technology and mentions Speakables for iPhoto, due "very soon," which will allow control of iPhoto.)
