Voice Enabled Mobile Search Arrives: TellMe

TellMe launched there voice activitated Mobile search today.

Its like yellow pages on your mobile using voice recognition.

The 411 service provider, which includes American Airlines among its
clients, will allow mobile users to use its application for free. The
search uses a robot to help you find what you need, and it’s voice
activated. Tell your phone which city and state you’re in then say the
name of what you’re looking for and a map with direction comes up.

It seems google hold a patent over this. The patent says,

"A system provides search results from a voice search query. The system receives a voice search query from a user, derives one or more recognition hypotheses, each being associated with a weight, from the voice search query, and constructs a weighted boolean query using the recognition hypotheses. The system then provides the weighted boolean query to a search system and provides the results of the search system to a user."
