ShoutOut App Let’s You Speak Your SMS Messages
If you have ever wanted to be able to use Android’s voice recognition to translate your spoken word to text message, then this is the app for you! Promptu, a software developer for both Android and the iPhone, has developed a speech recognition software application that will tie with Android’s messaging capability to allow you to speak your texts.
In a nutshell, ShoutOUT now lets users address their contacts by voice and listen to incoming texts instead of that boring, old reading them of days gone by. This latest version includes a notification bubble that pops up whenever a new text arrives. From there, users can playback and listen to the message, but they can also reply by voice with the tap of a button.
“ShoutOUT is the most accurate speech recognition app for text messaging on Android phones,” said Giuseppe Staffaroni, Promptu’s CEO. “We’re thrilled Verizon has selected ShoutOUT to be one of their featured applications.”
From the developer’s web site:
- Fast—voice transcription appears within seconds
- Complete SMS application—includes threaded discussion, thumbnail contacts, full editing features and landscape mode
- Voice addressing on Droid—speak the name of the person you want to contact
- Private—automated speech recognition means there’s no-one behind the scenes listening to your messages
ShoutOut is the name of the App, and is only available for those of you on Android 2.0.1, so those of you on 1.6 are kind of out of luck until you get upgraded, (or upgrade yourself via cyanogenmod). Use the barcode below to download the app!
