Yap: Voice-To-Text Translation On Your Cell

This is pretty sweet, Yap lets you send text messages just by talking into your phone. We’ve seen services like this before but the speech interpretation aspect has been porked. No word on how well this works yet but we’re assuming it won’t be that bad. Call it faith. The software also allows you to query web services like Google, Wikipedia, or YouTube with nothing but your voice. No word yet on if/when this will be available to the public or what phones are supported. Stay tuned, TC40 is still in full swing.
