Voice-Activated Search Technology Being Developed In Israel

by , Comments

The Globes [online] site from Israel has a brief article about Maestro, voice-activated search technology, being developed at Ben Gurion University of the Negev.

After the search has been executed, the results may be heard either as a list of websites, or by subject. Using voice commands, the user can navigate to the desired site, and listen to its content.
Google Voice Search from Google Labs (no longer available) provided voice-activated search via the telephone. Yahoo by Phone allows you to speak your commands into the telephone and receive e-mail, news, weather and other info but does not allow you to search the web. The new version of Opera also offers some voice-activated options.

Speegle, is not a voice-activated search engine but does read your Google results back to you using synthesized speech. We blogged about it late last year.
