Talking to Opera
Just got word of IBM/Opera's not-yet-finalized new Multi-Modal Browser:
Multimodal technology allows the interchangeable use of multiple forms of input and output, such as voice commands, keypads, or stylus — in the same interaction.
And from IBM:
Motorola, Opera Software ASA, and IBM submitted to the W3CÂ® a proposal for a multimodal markup language standard called XHTML+Voice (X+V for short) that provides a way to create multimodal Web applications (i.e., Web applications that offer both a voice and visual interface).
So there it is. The future.
Or part of it.
Have your say ...
