Our effort to bring innovative speech recognition software to the market knows no bounds. We’ve begun a promotion, starting July 4th weekend. Buy tazti voice recognition software and receive a $10 Best Buy gift certificate in the mail. This is a limited time offer, so don’t delay in taking advantage of it!
One of the things we kicked around was what kind of gift certificate to offer people. We settled on Best Buy because it seems like most people have one not far away and they have a pretty wide ranging selection of electronic goods that you can spend your gift card on. Still, we pride ourselve on being fairly open minded, so if you think we should offer a different gift card, feel free to let us know.
So if you haven’t bought tazti yet to play with your favorite RPG, FPS, MMORPG or RTS, we recommend you snatch it up now. For the rest of you who already have tazti, enjoy it with Call of Duty, Team Fortress, or our personal faves, Civilization and Starcraft.
P.S. We have more pics and video of Pax which we are going to post – our apologies to Heather and Jerry. We rediscovered the lost thumbdrive.
We’ve been hard at work upgrading tazti, and the http://www.tazti.com website. You may have noticed a font change on the tazti page – yes, that was our house elf messing with the site. That has been corrected and in fact improved! Also, we’ve upgraded the video to make it a bit more modern looking. So check it out! More announcements soon, and also we’ll be posting some more of the video we took at PAX – better late than never!
We have a number of short videos we took at PAX that we will be posting on this blog. The first video is of Ashley being interviewed by Machinima. I pulled out my pocket video cam to capture them interviewing her – I don’t think they even realized I was doing this. Machinima interviewed all three of our booth assistants, but Ashley was the only one I had the presence of mind (and free time) to capture. G4 also stopped by to photograph Heather, Jerry and Ashley. In my opinion the tazti booth assistants were the best at the show.
The pace did not slacken a bit on day 3 of PAX. In addition to an exhausting day of passing out tazti flyers, two of our booth assistants found themselves in an impromptu photo shoot in the main courtyard. Go Jerry and Heather!
After weeks of insane hours of work we’re shocked to find ourselves actually in our booth at PAX. About 3000 people have stopped by so far and watched our new video of Joshua Murphy and Colin Gold demonstrating Call Of Duty 2 Modern Warfare, Starcraft 2, and World of Warcraft using tazti to control these games without a keyboard.
Yes, this means that we officially announced tazti 2.0 today, so you now you can go to our tazti downloads page to play with all the new speech recognition features now available.
If you’re at the show stop by our booth (booth 3020) and say hi tomorrow or Sunday. Photo of booth follow below!
Our good friend Charles Knight has officially moved his mailbox from altsearchengines.com to thenextweb where he will be blogging about search. He was kind enough to blog about tazti and it’s possible benefits for disabled people. You can read about it here. If you’re going to web 2.0 you should check out Charles’ alternative search conference. Keep up the good work Charles!
There are all kinds of interesting articles on the new site, including this philosphical musing on the nature of Koogle. Here is a short article on the important contribution that kugle (short for kuglehof) has made to American culture. Read both articles and enjoy!
Some of our readers requested that we publish the actual video of the woman dressed as a green Orion slave girl we saw at Fan Expo 2009 in Toronto. Here it is due to popular demand. Not strictly related to tazti voice recognition, but enjoy anyway! Thanks to BR for telling us that the woman’s name is Katherine Piro – a well known and respected artist in the Toronto area. Obviously Katherine is a big fan of Star Trek!
I love this video by Google. It has a humanizing soft touch about it. I enjoy the Bing ads also, but while Bing is trying to convince you it’s a better mousetrap, Google is trying to convince you it’s relevant to your life (or you life as you want it to be). Regardless, it a shame they didn’t add tazti voice recognition to one of the videos.
