Advanced Recognition Technologies has announced at Comdex what it claims is the first voice recognition software for Windows CE 2.0 devices.
ART's smARTcommand allows users to perform actions like launching applications by using voice commands.
The company claims that the software will work with any speaker's voice, regardless of language or accent. Users can add new voice commands to the system. The program uses less than 80 KB of memory.
A second voice product from ART, smARTcontact, enables speech recognition for the contact manager supplied with Windows CE 2.0. Users can call up personal details on a contact, and dial this contact's phone number, by saying his name.
The two voice applications for Windows CE 2.0 will be available for download from ART's smARTshop Web page. smARTcommand will be priced at $29.95, with smARTcontact selling or 49.95.
ART is also releasing an SDK that will allow other developers to voice-enable their Windows CE applications.
