Enpocket Partners with VoiceSignal
WOBURN, MASS. - VoiceSignal entered a partnership with mobile advertising company Enpocket to provide advertisements for the new VSearch voice search service to be offered by VoiceSignal.
VSearch will be accessible for free and supported by advertising. Users will require a mobile data service plan to enable the handset to connect over the data network to the VSearch Servers.
VSearch is activated via a button on the handset and prompts the user to speak the location and name or category of a business. The system sends the processed audio information to the VSearch server via the mobile data network where the user's query is converted into text by the VSearch speech recognition engine. The requested listings along with interactive advertisements are sent to the device and displayed on the screen. The user can review the information, place a call to the business, and get a map of its location and more.
Future versions will deliver to consumers a range of information services including access to traffic, weather information, movie times, stock quotes, horoscopes, and sports scores. The service integrates targeted mobile ads, as well as mapping technology, enabling it to be offered free to consumers. The VSearch technology will be embedded into handsets made by handset OEMs.
