Vocalia 2.0 iPhone app
Creacreed has released v2.0 of its iPhone application, Vocalia. The software enables users to control their iPhone using voice recognition software. The new version provides speech recognition capabilities for the second generation iPod touch, enabling new features such as iTunes music control, and opening bookmarks in Safari. Version 2.0 also features help messages that list possible commands that can be used and utilizes enhanced proximity sensing abilities to recognize speech in noisy environments.
The application can be used to search for contacts in the phone's address book, define vocal shortcuts for contact names, and split first and last names of contacts. If a mistake is made, users can shake the iPhone to start again. The software recognizes English, French or German. Vocalia 2.0 is available from the App Store for $4.
