iChat voice command

ClearOne today announced that its Chat 50 speakerphone is the first device of its kind that allows Mac users to operate VoIP (Voice over IP) applications such as Skype and iChat by voice command. The phone uses Speakable Items -- Apple's embedded speech recognition technology -- and Speakables or Skype software to enable hands-free control of VoIP applications. The Chat 50's audio processing technologies deliver full-duplex audio and full echo cancellation, allowing Mac users to continue to listen to iTunes or watch TV with sound output through the computer's main speakers while still using Skype or iChat via voice command. Speakables for iTunes is priced at $10, while the Chat 50 speakerphone is available now in three models. The Chat 50 USB ($150) ships with a USB cable, the Chat 50 USB+ includes a cell phone cable as well as a power supply for $180, and the Chat 50 Global Traveler ($210) ships with a USB cable, cell phone cable, power supply, MP3 cable, and a hard shell travel case.
