A Moment of Silence for a Good Windows Mobile Research Project: So Long Microsoft Recite

Microsoft Recite Update from Elliott Lemenager on Vimeo.

I am truly saddened to learn of the demise of what I thought was an interesting and useful Microsoft Windows Mobile research project…

Important Notice: Microsoft Recite to be discontinued

Microsoft Recite let you record audio notes and then search through them by saying a keyword to use to search through your audio files. I think it would have been incredibly cool and useful it this technology had, for example, been integrated into Microsoft OneNote Mobile to let you record voice notes that could be search through on a Windows Mobile smartphone or desktop PC.

But, that is not to be. Instead, the Recite app on Windows Mobile smartphones everywhere will stop working after the last bell tolls for 2009.
