IBM has launched ViaVoice 98, a product that will allow users to direct Word 97 with Natural Language Commands. For example, users can say "double space this paragraph" or "change the spacing of this paragraph to double" to perform the same task. Using ViaVoice 98, text and commands can be dictated interchangeably without saying extra words - a slight pause is enough to switch between modes. IBM claims ViaVoice has the world's largest active vocabulary, with a 56,000 base active vocabulary and 64,000 capacity for the user to add words using Vocabulary Expander and Vocabulary Manager.
