Microsoft announced the public availability of Recite Technology Preview.
Microsoft Recite was a search technology for your voice that ran on Windows
Mobile 6.0 and higher devices. With Microsoft Recite, you can use your voice to
easily store, search and retrieve the things you want to remember, where and
when you need them. However, yesterday the Recite team announced on the project
page, that Microsoft Recite will be discontinued by end of this year. According
to this announcement, Microsoft will no longer be offering the Microsoft Recite
Technology Preview as of December 31, 2009. After this date you will no longer
be able to access Microsoft Recite from your mobile phone.
The Microsoft Recite Team thanks you for your valuable feedback on this
product and says:
The ability to capture notes and reminders is an area we are still
focused on and we will continue to consider your feedback to build out these
rich experiences in upcoming products.
Microsoft is also noting that it is important to them that you retain the
Microsoft Recite files you need. To ensure you do not lose access to any
valuable data, Microsoft encourages you to transfer your Microsoft Recite files
from your phone to your computer
Microsoft hasn't yet given any further information where the Recite
technology might appear at an commercial product. However, OneNote Mobile/2010
might be a good bet anyway.
