Tazti Brings Voice Recognition to PC Games

by Christopher EllisSeptember 4, 2010

Tazti (pronounced tasty) is a piece of voice-recognition , but instead of text-to-speech, it allows you to map and mouse strokes to your own words.

At their PAX booth, the company had a demo set up showing the software used with World of Warcraft, Starcraft II, and Call of Duty 4. I had a chance to talk with the folks that write the software.

While you might be able to use Tatzi for keyboard-free gaming, it’s meant more to supplement your game. An example the demo showed was saying “frag” to throw a grenade or “knife” to swing your knife in Call of Duty.

Tatzi can be, and was originally intended for other applications, not just games. Since it’s kind of like a verbal Auto Hot Key, you can use it in numerous applications. It boasts support for major browsers and iTunes out of the box, including text-to-speech search.

The program comes in multiple versions. There’s a product matrix on the website showing the difference between them. You can download a 15-day trial of the premium version which normally costs $59.99. You get two licenses (give one to a friend!). Right now, there’s a PAX sale, offering Tazti for $29.99.

Leave a comment if you try Tazti, and let us know what you think of it, and what you use it for.
