...I don't know if anyone has already done this, but I just loaded Microsoft Voice Commander onto my iMate Jam...

It has just improved the performance loads...you just speak and it obeys - to call, get contacts/calendar or start programs from the Start Menu...

...now I know this is not a new program, but when put on the Jam...WOW!!! Give it a go... 8)

Cheers
Nick

from what I've read it's got to be initiated from a button on the phone, so I've replaced the sound recorder with voice command. So with a quick rumage in your pocket :shock: you could then probably make a call via voice

MS Voice is not officially available in the UK. I was told this was due to it being designed for American accents and vocabulary. Can it speak back in a UK voice? Does it work OK with English pronunciation?

Voice Central (which includes Voice Dial) has similar functionality to the MS product but is $10 cheaper. I haven't tried it yet but believe it's available with a UK voice pack.
