Voices for blinds

Cabe, thanks for the interesting post. Voices can be great help for the blind people. They can also have the access to internet without depending on others to read data from internet..

Good ;point, AnandY. This is a great service for the blind, and also for those who have trouble reading. It's easy to forget that the Internet is dominated by written language. While most commercial sites emphasize visuals, it is still essentially the written word that carries the info.

This is a great project, Cabe, thanks for covering it. What many of us take for granted is such a luxury to many people, and to bring the Internet to people who can't access could really open up a whole new world.

Really Cabe,This is an excellent information which you have conveyed but the voice service which you have mentioned that a customer will call and ask for specific query and a pre recorded answer will be available my question is this that is this service available for specific languages or for varienty of languages or is it available only in english .

The future of Internet access

I've often wondered if voice will eventually become the preferred input methodology for the Internet. As computing products shrink to a size that make keyboards too klunky, and as displays grow so small that they're hard to read, it would seem that voice would play a bigger and biger role in the future, even for the literate.

Cabe, it's a good idea. I think apart from that there have to be some provisions for audio search and retrieving the information from internet through audio mode. I mean instead of read, users have to able to listen the information in audio format.

Charles, I would like to prefer voice as output also. So I can use hands free for surfing and info gathering from net, while engaged with other jobs.
