Voice Activated Search Knows Who Is Talking To It
OfficeDrop's updated iOS apps now features voice search, which lets users find words, phrases and numbers in their files and file names right from their device.
Document management provider OfficeDrop has updated its iOS apps to help users search for the files they need using voice command. Using Nuance’s speech-recognition technology, finding documents is now a step easier. Users can now speak a word, phrase or number, such as a file name, and the app will instantly pull up any document scanned into their account containing those words.
OfficeDrop uses the same technology that powers Siri voice-recognition search, allowing users to find documents within the online cloud storage system. Voice biometrics are used to identify and distinguish between users, inspiring new applications of voice-activated search and more. OfficeDrop CEO Prasad Thammineni said:
The OfficeDrop iOS 6 updates are some of our most innovative yet. We wanted to take some of the existing features iPhone and iPad owners are excited about and tie them into the app in a functional way. Both voice search and social sharing fit with OfficeDrop’s mission to create a dead-simple way for small businesses to go paperless and find what they need in an instant.
