Get vocal with the new Voice URL fring Add-on

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!

    WOw!!!!!!!! i like fring alot.. and of course my new phone nokia 5800. I just bought this phone 3 days ago and i install fring and i can say.. awesome. I dont have any voicestunt, voicecheap and skype for VOIP call to USA. Those name i mention are free downloaded already in the fring menu.

    The good thing i like so much is i can add-up any VOIP software via “SIP” , then after i configured and i try to call my relatives in States… Wow.. its realy cool.. .and clear like a normal calls as long as you are in the wifi hotspots and can get better internet connection. Thats .. it.!! THank you so much to the http://www.fring.com
