Spyglass and Lucent Technologies have come up with a ?phone browsing? device that will let you surf the Web by controlling movements with your voice.
The device, still in prototype, will enable you to dial a telephone number and navigate Web pages using simple voice commands. You will also be able to ?listen? to voice-synthesised pages.
At the moment the phone browser?s content is limited to high demand consumer services, including the weather, sports scores and share quotes. Both companies, however, are working on adding other services.
The phone browser is built on Lucent?s speech recognition and text-to-speech technologies, plus Spyglass Prism, a Web server system that selectively filters Web pages to pull out and package content for platforms with limited display and interface capabilities.
Prism enables the phone browser to ignore unnecessary text found on many Web pages, such as related links, and just go for the core content, claims Spyglass.
No time scales have been given for general availabilty.
