Vocalia for iPhone allows voice recognition

Vocalia loads contacts

Creaceed has released its speech-recognition software, Vocalia, for the iPhone. It allows users to access contacts for calling or emailing, without having to navigate through the iPhone Contacts app. With Vocalia active, users speak the name they wish to call up, and the software selects a list of contacts that match or closely match the spoken name. The user can then select the name they need and call or email the contact. The software also supports vocal shortcuts like "my best friend" and can split last and first names, allowing a search for "Joe" or "Smith."

Vocalia uses the Julius engine, a two pass, large vocabulary continuous speech recognition (LVCSR) decoder. It is available on the iTunes App Store for an introductory price of $4, through Oct. 18, and then will cost $8.
