Simplify the workplace with the power of voice. These speech-driven technologies — some embedded in Microsoft products your business might already have — are easy-to-use and naturally efficient.
A must for traveling, any time lost Internet connection or a dead battery impedes productivity — or just as a great way to power through voicemail or to call coworkers. Outlook Voice Access can tap into Exchange Server from any phone and then read you your e-mail (detecting many languages) or dial contacts at a spoken command, all by using text-to-speech (TTS) and voice recognition technology. It can even talk you through your calendar: meetings can be accepted, declined, postponed, or cancelled over the phone using speech commands.
Outlook Voice Access keeps messages and meetings rolling when employees are on the go. It simplifies access to unified messaging with natural voice commands. Employees can zip through voicemail without memorizing a touch-tone menu, or they can dial someone in the company directory just by saying a name. How easy is that?

Like a personal secretary, Voicemail Preview transcribes phone messages and shoots them to your Outlook inbox (along with an MP3, in case you want to play the original). Now you can sift through voicemail as easily as e-mail — and respond. It’s particularly handy when recipients are in a meeting or otherwise unable to take a call.
Microsoft Lync 2010 ships with exciting speech capabilities. In addition, developers can create custom speech solutions with the Unified Communications Managed API (UCMA) 3.0.
