Companies develop voice control of digital entertainment devices

IBM and Avoca Semiconductor have announced a collaboration with All Media Guide (AMG) to support voice control and search on digital entertainment devices. The project would use IBM's Embedded ViaVoice speech recognition technology. Avoca Semiconductor is a developer of voice user interfaces, and AMG is a music and entertainment content provider.

Beginning with digital music, Avoca and AMG will co-create and design products that make voice an intuitive hands-free way to interact with a user's personal media collection.

Avoca has an OEM agreement with IBM, under which Avoca will use IBM Embedded ViaVoice speech recognition technology in the design of its voice control and search product family.

IBM's Embedded ViaVoice works in mobile devices that include smart phones, handheld PDAs and automobile components. It provides both speech recognition and text-to-speech functionality supporting a variety of real-time operating systems and microprocessors.
