Voice-enabled mobile search: YAHOO!

yahoo mobile phone voice enabled

Information Week just published an article on Yahoo adding voice-enabled search on its mobile platform, called OneSearch 2.0, which it plans to roll out to manufacturers beginning this summer. According to the article, “To access the voice service, a person would only have to push the call button on the phone and say a word or phrase to Yahoo’s automated service to get results shipped to the phone. During the demo, saying ‘British Airways 287’ got arrival times, ‘March Madness’ got a list of scores for games played during the college basketball tournament, and ‘3600 Las Vegas Boulevard’ led to a street map and directions.”

But again, we all know how the computers deal with voices and pronunciation. Watch the video below on automated phone sex and you’ll know what I mean.
