By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor
Holidays are just around the corner and speech technologies provider Sensory has a few suggestions to those searching for voice interactive gift ideas.
Noting speech-equipped products to be hot purchases for this holiday season, Sensory says that talking to your technology is one of the emerging trends of 2011.
The Samsung Galaxy S II is amongst the many suggestions the company makes for shoppers and appreciates its best-selling Android (News - Alert) phone's Voice Talk technology that comes equipped with Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Voice Control.
Users can simply say "Hi Galaxy" and send across a message, navigate to a location, call a friend and more.
Shoppers can also gift cordless phones recently introduced by both VTech and AT&T (News - Alert). These devices feature talking caller ID and leverage Sensory's MicroTTS technology to speak the caller's name.
One can buy many home electronics products that use Sensory's speech technologies such as Toshiba's (News - Alert) voice controlled air conditioner line and the Daiseikai VOiCE NDR Series.
These products enable users to operate the wall-mounted units with their voices. Another product mentioned by Sensory is the Moshi Voice Control Alarm Clock, which responds to 12 voice commands including "set alarm" and "turn off alarm."
Other interesting products available in the market are Accenda's VOICE CONTROL for the Classic iPod, the Kelvin Voice Activated Talking Programmable Thermostat, Hallmark's Interactive StoryBooks and different Bluetooth-enabled car kits and headsets featuring Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Voice Control and MicroTTS technology.
Some of the hottest toys of 2011 also leverage Sensory's technology such as Fijit Friends that recognize more than 30 keywords for interactive jokes and chatting, and then respond with more than 150 phrases.
