Microsoft’s Windows 8 interface and features are still shrouded in some mystery but a new video emerged on Tuesday that appears to show how photo sharing may work.
The video was revealed by Microsoft’s TellMe team at a SpeechTEK 2011 conference in New York on Tuesday. The majority of the video features Windows Phone 7 concepts of future versions that include deeper speech technology. Windows Phone has existing speech technology thanks to Microsoft’s TellMe service. Microsoft hopes to push this further to the TV (with Xbox) and on Windows 8 tablets.
Microsoft’s video briefly demonstrates how speech recognition would work in future on tablets. The demo includes a tile based user interface and shows a simple way of sharing pictures using touch and voice. The interface appears to be a concept of how the next version of Windows will perform speech queries, however this could hint at what Microsoft is planning for Windows 8.
