IBM Demoes Speech Recognition for Palm
Last week, IBM demoed a prototype of a clip-on sled that contains a DSP (digital signal processing) chip and memory for translating speech to text. The prototype could only be used for executing commands in a contact database or appointments calendar, as well as for voice-activated phone dialing. It wasn't capable of true speech to text, where the user simply talks and their words are entered into a text-editing app. Price and availability for the final product aren't yet available.
For dialing out on the Palm, the system would interact with a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone. It isn't clear whether IBM's device would have the Bluetooth chips built-in or if the Palm itself would need to handle that.
