One Voice Technologies recently demonstrated its Windows-based voice recognition software running on a Mac mini with Boot Camp. The Mac mini was booted in Microsoft Windows XP Media Center 2005, and was running One Voiceis Media Center Communicator software. According to TMCnet, the software, which lets you use spoken commands to tell your computer to play music, view photo slideshows, and watch movies, ran very well on the Mac.
Dean Weber, president and CEO or One Voice Technologies, commented "Our Media Center Communicator software is amazingly fast running on an Apple Mac mini Intel Core Duo machine."
Although most Mac users would rather use a Mac OS X-based application for managing their digital home entertainment center, the One Voice demonstration underscores the power and flexibility of the new Intel-based Macs. Coupled with Boot Camp, which is in a public beta testing phase now, new Macs offer a far more versatile computing environment than their Windows-only counterparts.
