New Delhi: Are you tired of typing texts on your mobile to send an SMS? Then speak out your message!
Well, the above mentioned phrase is not any advertorial for any product range but a spell-out of IIT’s plan to convert speech in to text message.
As per the reports of a news paper, the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) Hyderabad is developing a mobile technology that would accept speech as command and convert it into text, which can be sent as an SMS.
The project funded by the Ministry of Information Technology will be ready in two years.
With the common man from Tier II and tier III cities yet lagging behind in mobile technology and the older generation from these cities not completely compatible to messaging technology, the innovative mobile feature will become a rage, hopes the project developers.
Talking to the news paper, Rajeev Sangal, director of IIIT said that the mobile technology will allow the people who do not know reading or writing to dictate their message, which will get delivered as a text.
“Slimmer the gadget, cooler it is,” being the latest fad in mobile technology, this feature will prove to be quite useful in the phones which are smaller in size and have a smaller display.
