Thread Title:
Opera Software’s voice-controlled electronic program guide
Thread Description:

Check out further Opera diversification and furtherance of their voice tech shown in the recent Opera 8 browser.

Can't say i fancy it myself, but it's pretty cool tech by the look of it. Engadget says:

Their latest is a voice-enabled electronic program guide (EPG) that lets you control your TV without the need of a remote (it’s such an effort, you know?). The voice technology, which is based on IBM’s Embedded ViaVoice, will also make it’s way into Opera’s new web browser (which should be available in a few weeks). No word on when the voice-enabled EPG will be available.
