    Hey everyone,

    While using Google I have noticed a link at the bottom of the homepage that leads to a page about the new voice searching function, this thread is open for discussion (how to make use of this, pros, and cons ... etc)

    Best Regards.

    That's correct.

    My hypothesis is : It will either affect typos negatively or positively.

    Negatively : because if a user uses his voice to search for something then he -most likely- not make any typos as Google will type in the correct spelling of each word.

    Positively : 1-If the service isn't perfect and makes typos then a lot of types and wrong spelling of words will take place.

    2-If a person's first language isn't English then he will most likely mispronounce some words and as a result Google will either make typos or replace the mispronounced word with another word .

    Yea, good for smartphones because they have already a mic. Bad for people who has desktop computers without a mic, you have to install it first or turn it on, I'm lazy, I just wanna type porn, I don't wanna say it, thats weird.

    There may be an opportunity for words that come up under a different pronunciation. I have voice searching on my phone, and it sometimes can't figure out what I'm trying to say...especially if it's an acronym.

    Or, if people say "lowes home improvement", it might come back with "lows home improvement", which is a keyword variation you can target

    Kinda like targeting misspelled words.


    LOL...is "uhhh.com" taken?

    5 years from now desktops as laptops do now may have microphones installed in the screen and may be a lot cleverer and able to filter out background noise (always on) there is an app available now on android vlingo where you can switch voice rec on just by telling it to.

    It is worth thinking about this will be coming and it a natural next step as it reduced the requirement for cumbersome keyboards.

    For me this isn't an if its a when!!

    lol, I just tried it. I don't have a mic though and used my headphones as a mic.

    I said "Captain Kirk" and Google searched for "Good Girl".

    I don't think this is going to be that big for awhile, not until a lot more products come out with inbuilt microphones as well as software that can more accurately separate background noise from the actual users voice.

    Nice feature, just downloaded it to my mobile but I really doubt that people will use it, it's like the voice dialing... how many of you actually use it?

    Tada!! another good searching facility from Big G. I haven't used google voice search but this thread is making me force to find out more on this.
    Let's see how good and accurate it is to search through google voice.
