BetaNews | Opera Voice Enables the Living Room
“Opera Software, best known for its Web browser, is venturing into the living room. Opera’s voice-enabled Electronic Program Guide (EPG), featuring IBM Embedded ViaVoice, fuses together the tasks of many different remote controls into basic voice commands.
With EPG, users tell their DVD player or cable box what they want to happen by talking to it. The announcement comes just weeks before Opera is expected to make available a voice-enabled version of its Web browser.”
