GOOG 411 is awesome

I just tried out Goog 411 and it works so well. I have tried out various speech recognition programs and some have been pretty good, but when I tried GOOG 411 it got almost everything I said simply and quickly. Also it gives you listings that you can browse using your voice and get details on. All that and it is free too. To build a truly great voice recognition system you need many voice fragments. This 411 system allows google to train a great voice recognition model. I'm sure you will start seeing this in other offerings from google. One application is to transcribe voices in videos and podcasts. They will be able to use voice recognition and search in the same way as everyzing.com
