Voice Assist Inc. has released a new hands-free application for drivers using the Android operating system. The Lake Forest-based award-winning designer of speech and voice-recognition technologies’ latest product provides a safe platform for drivers to call, text and post to social media networks using voice commands.

 “While you can use the Voice Assist service from any phone, our new Android app makes the service even easier to use by integrating with the Android address book and providing one tap access. There is no reason why someone should be looking at their phone while driving,” said Michael Metcalf, CEO of Voice Assist.

Users who download the Voice Assist hands-free drivers’ app will have the option of using a full, ad-supported version of Voice Assist at no charge. Other premium versions of the service with complete features, including unlimited calling and a live 24-hour concierge service and no advertising, are available through the Voice Assist website.

Voice Assist, the company’s flagship voice command product, uses a network-based virtual platform called SpeechScript. This patent pending application works with handsets, PC’s, tablets, and IPTV or Internet Radio. This hands-free interface allows people to use voice commands to text, dial, email, post, transact or play music by voice.

The hands-free app for drivers is available for download for free through Google Play.
