Only 2 days after the twitter 2.0 add-on, we’re very excited to let you know about a new fring add-on that recognizes a spoken web address (URL) and opens the desired website without any finger work at all!
It’s based on a new patented voice URL recognition software called VURL that upon command turns the spoken URL into text, opens a browser on your phone and then automatically opens the desired web site.
The patented VURL software based on the GNIRF protocol (Geo Narrative Internet Recognition features) identifies regularly used speech patterns such as the phrase “www-dot” as a way of initiating a desired action, in this case opening a website.
Now here’s where you come into this. We’d really appreciate your help to make this feature available to all of our millions of fringsters worldwide by optimizing the software to recognize the “www-dot” speech pattern for as many accents and dialects as possible. You can help us achieve this by recording and sending us a sample of your voice. Use your normal voice, accent and speaking speed – just follow this example.
[Example taken off... you got the joke, right? ]
Remember to state your country of origin at the end of the recording. Then please email the recorded file to the: VoiceURL@fring.com
As always, we’d love to hear your feedback… and thanks for your help!
