Microsoft touts product range with speech-controlled natural user interface

Microsoft’s Ilya Bukshteyn, senior director of marketing for Microsoft’s speech business, spoke to GigaOM about their Tellme service, which forms an integral part of their much lauded Sync system, and now Xbox Kinect and of course Windows Phone 7.

Ilya noted that while at present the service was very command based, in the future it will be more interactive and conversation based where the service will anticipate what the user wanted.

Of note for long-time Windows Mobile users however is that the Tellme service is much less functional that Microsoft Voice Command was, and many of us can not wait for the functionality to increase back to that level again.
