  • search the web using Google or Yahoo!: “Champions league fixtures”
  • call a contact: “call Daniel’s mobile”
  • update your Facebook or Twitter status: “Update Twitter; Great skiing today up north!”
  • dictate text into any text box with Vlingo Everywhere including: BBM™, AIM, Yahoo, Windows Live
  • launch virtually any application: “open calendar”
  • have incoming email and text messages read aloud via SafeReaderTM
  • (NEW) have calendar reminders read aloud via SafeReaderTM

“Vlingo combines speech recognition, natural language processing, and Vlingo’s Intent Engine to understand the user’s intent and take the appropriate action,” said Ashley Griffiths, Managing Director, EMEA at Vlingo.  “We are excited to bring additional language support to European users, giving you the ability to quickly and safely connect to the people, businesses and information that are important to you.”

    That’s great. Is it necessary to select just one language? One reason I stopped using Vlingo was the inability to speak to my BB in French, English, and Spanish. I need them all!

      Ruth, great question. Right now you can only select one language at a time. But while this is a very complex problem – to handle inputs in multiple languages at once – it’s one we’re openly discussing. Hope you stay up to date with what goes on over here at Vlingo and at some point you rejoin us as a customer. Thanks for the comments.
