announces voice activated directions for mobile phones : New gizmos, Gadgets gazette Blog

Friday, January 4, 2008 announces voice activated directions for mobile phones logoAsk has released a mobile directions service called Click To Speak. This will allow users to enter an address using your voice instead of typing it out. Simply speak the city and state, then the street address for both your destination and also your starting point.

To use the new Click To Speak just visit from your mobile browser, click the Directions link, then click on the speak the address option. Once there you will just hit “Continue” and you will then begin the voice prompts, after you finish you will receive a text message with the details of your directions. The directions are available in either a list view or turn-by-turn view and can even be switched back and forth between driving and walking routes.

With just a quick test myself it seems pretty good, check out the video below for a quick walk through.
