VoiceSignal Partners with AdMob on Voice Search Offering
VoiceSignal is partnering with mobile advertising AdMob to provide highly relevant advertisements for the nits VSearch voice search service.
VSearch will be 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 will be activated via a button on the handset and prompt 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 and relevant, interactive advertisements are sent to the device and displayed on the screen. The user can review the information, place a call to the business, get a map of its location, and more.
Future versions will deliver to consumers a wide range of innovative information services including access to traffic, weather information, movie times, stock quotes, horoscopes and sports scores. The service integrates specially targeted mobile ads, as well as mapping technology. VSearch will be embedded into mass-market handsets made by the world's leading handset OEMs.
