Voice Command 1.5 now available !


Voice Command 1.5 is now available (duh, I’ve already said that in the title of the post!!!)

New! Additional features to assist people with impaired vision.   For consumers who have difficulty reading a small screen or using a key pad, Voice Command v1.5 now includes features that provide people who are blind and visually impaired with complete voice-controlled access to phone functions on Pocket PC Phone Editions.  Voice Command v1.5 features include:

  • New! Incoming and missed call announce.  Pocket PC Phone Edition users can take full advantage of incoming caller ID without ever looking down at the screen.  Incoming call information is announced as calls are received.  If you think you may have missed a call you can simply ask “What calls did I miss?” and Voice Command will recite the time and phone number of missed calls.  
  • New!  Voice-controlled utilities. Users can check the signal strength and battery life to assure optimal functionality of their Pocket PCs.  Voice commands also access the time and date with the touch of a button.   
  • Best-selling Pocket PC software.   Core features, including hands-free, voice-controlled interaction with the phone, contacts, calendar, media player and other popular applications continue to help consumers stay connected to digital information while on the go.  Pocket PC owners currently using Voice Command v1.0 can upgrade to the new version for free at Handango.com.

    I guess the non-US version 1.5 is the news here since the US 1.5 has been available for a couple of months.

    Moste news web sites and blogs is reporting about the "new" version 1.5 as if it didn’t exist before.

    That’s nice an all, but when are versions with support for other languages going to be released?

    What I like most about the new one is being able to ask my PPC for the date or time without even having to open the case I keep mine in (although I still prefer the talking clock I wrote… the time is announced in my own voice).

    If Voice Command can read a file specified on the command line, anyone care to see if it works as a Text-to-Speech engine for an RSS Feed using FeederReader. FeederReader has customizable Export command that can call a program. Contact me on my message board if you want help with this!

    Make any blog a podcast totally on your Pocket PC, cool!
