Microsoft releases a technology preview of its new Recite application for Windows Mobile that uses voice search technology to let users record notes for themselves and then later find those notes by speaking back to the application. Microsoft Recite uses voice pattern matching, which is different from speech recognition because it doesn’t convert the spoken words to text. It analyzes the patterns in your speech and finds matches between two recordings: the notes you stored on your phone and the search you do using your voice. Recite reportedly allows you to store “thousands of spoken notes,” but of course this is limited by how much space you have on your mobile phone.
If you’ve got one of the following phones, you can go download the preview for free (via text, mobile browser, or your computer) and try it out: AT&T BlackJack II, AT&T Pantech Duo, HTC Diamond, Motorola Q9C, Moto Q9m, Palm Treo 800w, Palm Treo Pro, SMT 5800, T-Mobile Dash, T-Mobile Shadow, and T-Mobile Wing. If you don’t have one of these phones, the video below gives a few examples of how the application works.
