Want speech recognition but don't have an iPhone 3GS? No problem. Vocalia 2.0 is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch running OS 3.0. Much like the voice command on the iPhone 3GS, the Vocalia can find contact/company to call or email to, start music playback by artist or group and launch web site, all by voice command.
Vocalia... ? Uses Julius for multi-locutor speech recognition ? Works currently in English, French and German ? Runs entirely on iPhone or 2nd generation iPod Touch (without network connection) ? Obeys strictly to your voice at every step ? Sends no private information to any unknown and far away servers ? Provides default working phonemic transcriptions for all your contacts, songs and bookmarks ? Shows up to 10 results ? Displays visual effects responding to sound and gravity (a.k.a "Vocalia's Eye")
With Vocalia, you can... ? Define additional vocal shortcuts in addition to the contact name ("My best friend" for "John Doe") ? Split first and last name of your contacts (saying "John" will display all corresponding entries of your address book) ? Set the navigation mode (voice, manual taps or timer) ? Activate Proximity sensing for better recognition results in noisy environments ? Shake the iPhone to try again ? Activate vibration so that you know when to start speaking ? Import bookmarks from your Mac
