VoiceSignal enables voice recognition in the iPhone

VoiceSignal enables voice recognition in the iPhone.

One of the more obvious features lacking from the iPhone has been voice recognition, especially since the iPhone is sans an actual keypad. Well the folks over at VoiceSignal have apparently developed a couple of "proof-of-concept" voice command applications and managed to transfer them over to the iPhone. VSearch lets you search for certain keywords, and VTunes lets you bring up your favorite band/artist on the music player just by saying the name. Thankfully, VoiceSignal has recorded a couple of YouTube videos demonstrating the applications, as seen here. We're curious to see if this takes off in any way, and we cross our fingers that Apple may introduce this natively into the next generation of iPhones. [Source: Engadget Mobile ]
