Click to viewWe've heard of VoiceSignal speech recognition for lots of other phones, but now VoiceSignal sent us a video that allegedly shows it working for the first time on the iPhone. According to the guy in the clip, a couple of VoiceSignal engineers designed this app, but all we see it doing so far is controlling music on the iPhone.

It's for real (see update below). Sure will be nice to be able to use speech commands with the iPhone, telling it to call so-and-so on those mic-equipped earbuds while keeping the phone in the pocket.

UPDATE: We got this exclusive info from Chris LeBlanc at VoiceSignal: "It works just like our other apps, so it's speaker independent and needs no training at all to recognize names, numbers and general speech. We will demo the continuous voicemode on the iPhone soon, I've already seen it — and it's nearly ready." Chris has promised us a demo copy, so we'll give you a first look as soon as it arrives.
