Fonix Unveils Upgrades for Mobile Devices
Fonix Speech, an operating division of Fonix(R) Corporation (OTCBB:FNIX), an integrated communications carrier providing telecommunications services and value-added speech technologies, will demonstrate an upgraded version of Fonix VoiceCentral(TM) for mobile/wireless devices at 3GSM World Congress, Cannes, France, February 14-17, Hall 1, Booth C23.
Fonix VoiceCentral 3.0 is an interactive, hands-free software application for Windows Mobile, Nokia Series 60 and Symbian devices that provides users with “hands-free, eyes-free” management of their device — users dial contacts and access information simply by speaking.
Fonix VoiceCentral 3.0 now supports Italian speech recognition, expanding market opportunities for European mobile phone and PDA device manufacturers and mobile operators (language list also includes French, German, Spanish, Japanese and English). Fonix speech recognition is neural network-based, allowing for greater user accuracy rates and lower MIPS and CPU requirements.
Fonix VoiceCentral 3.0 provides the following new features and benefits: — Create commands: Users can now create commands such as “Play Music” or “Browse website.” — Minimize the display: Users can minimize the VoiceCentral display so only a small information bar is visible. — Add a contact: Users may choose to add a new contact to the database when dialing a number. — Sim card access: Users may call contacts that are stored on the SIM card as well as the PDA. — Improved user interface: Improvements include easy to use menus for more control and alphabetic search buttons to quickly find contacts or applications. — Improved TTS: The text-to-speech quality has been improved.
“Fonix speech interfaces run the developmental gamut,” says Tim K. Hong, vice president, Fonix Mobile/Wireless. “Fonix offers manufacturers a litany of possible solutions, from simple voice dialing solutions to complex multi-function capabilities. Fonix mobile applications enable manufacturers to develop devices ideal for people who want a better, safer and easier way to dial contacts and access email and other information.”
