Yahoo! oneSearch w/Voice Now Available in Phillipines
Launched in 2007, Yahoo! oneSearch is specifically designed for mobile devices. It delivers results directly to the user in the first screen, thereby reducing the need for consumers to navigate through a sea of web links to find the information they want. Yahoo! oneSearch gives consumers faster access to content such as news, financial information, weather conditions, Flickr photos and information from Yahoo! Answers users around the globe.
Leading mobile operators such as Globe, Smart Communications Inc and Sun Cellular in the Philippines are all partners with Yahoo! to offer the Yahoo! oneSearch service to their subscribers.
Today, Yahoo! delivered the next phase of mobile search technology by launching Yahoo! oneSearch with voice for English speakers in the Philippines, to make it easier for them to initiate mobile searches. Yahoo! oneSearch with voice first launched in the U.S. in April, followed by India and Singapore in June. According to internal metrics, the product has successfully demonstrated the ability to increase the number of average searches per user by over 35% across the same mobile device models, after discounting for speech accuracy rates.
Available beginning today for select BlackBerry devices including the 8800 series, Curve, and Pearl, this product is capable of understanding, disambiguating and learning accents localized for the Philippines, allowing consumers to search for anything by simply speaking into their devices.
Whereas many other mobile voice recognition systems are specific to vertical categories such as local listings, Yahoo! oneSearch with voice lets users perform "wide open" searches - returning relevant results for a range of queries. With usage, Yahoo! oneSearch with voice will adapt to the user’s intonations and accent, providing increasingly fine-tuned results as the product is used. The new voice-enabled Yahoo! oneSearch can be downloaded from http://m.yahoo.com/voice. The product is expected to support more devices in the coming months.
