According to a post on Detnews.com, Chris Weber, the president of Nokia USA, demonstrated the new technology that recognises speech and converts it into text and vice-verse. The same technology is being embedded in the upcoming Mango phones that will allow users to receive and send text messages verbally.
The technology works on a simple yet unique principle of speech recognition that allows the device to recognise what the users speaks and translate that in to text and numbers when user needs to send a message or reply to a message. And the same technology works in the reverse principle of test to speech in case of an incoming text message.
The new feature, Nokia hopes, will help in reducing road accidents as people sometime feel tempted to reply to a message while driving, temporarily diverting their attention from the road.
It is expected that this new feature will come as a standard feature for most upcoming Nokia Windows Phone Mango smartphones. However, its availability in India cannot be confirmed as of now.
