Engineers at Digital's Cambridge research laboratory launched a device last week that will let Netscape Navigator users record and send voice Email directly from a Web page.
The free browser plug-in, which functions as part of a Web page, can be plugged in by Web publishers whenever they want feedback or a verbal response from their users.
The product is just one of many Human-Computer Interaction technologies being developed at Digital's Cambridge laboratories, some of which will be demonstrated by the company at Internet World in Los Angeles this month.
The company plans to support Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Netscape's Communicator browsers in the next version of Voice Plug-in, which is scheduled for release this summer.
The plug-in can be downloaded from http:// www.interface.
