|Description||Voice Recognition Technology|
Tellme provides voice recognition and instruction technology, fundamentally improving how people use the phone to get the information they need everyday. By combining Internet data and a voice interface, Tellme’s services let people simply say what they want and get it.
Some of the services running on Tellme’s platform include business search on 411, information search on 1-800-555-TELL as well as customer service and ordering for companies like American Airlines, Merrill Lynch, and FedEx. Tellme powered billions of calls every year and is used by more than 40 month.
Microsoft acquired Tellme in 2007, and Microsoft now uses Tellme’s technology in Windows Phone’s voice recognition, Bing voice search, Xbox voice recognition, and other Microsoft technologies.
