Microsoft Unveils Mobile Speech Recognititon Search Engine

Microsoft Releases New Searches For Mobile

Live Search 411.

Jointly developed with Tellme Networks Inc., acquired by Microsoft earlier this year, a new toll-free number will be available for anyone using any kind of phone to access the power of Live Search.

Users can simply dial (800) CALL-411 (800-225-5411) and say the city and state, then ask for the business or business category to hear a list of options.

Users say, “Connect me,” to instantly connect to the business. Cell phone users can ask for a text message with a link to a map of the business.*

Lots of revenue streams and advertising options with this application.

Next up for Microsoft, a speech recognition browser
