[ga] VeriSign adds voice-activation service
Excerpt: (IDG) -- As if controlling the most popular domain names on the Web
were not enough, VeriSign has decided it wants to move into voice-activated
telephone service as well.
The Mountain View, Calif.-based company, which maintains the registry for the
".com," ".net" and ".org" domains, announced a pilot program Thursday for a
system called Global Voice Registry that would enable users to speak a
business name into their conventional or mobile telephone and be connected
automatically. The service will be free to customers and the phone companies
that offer it; VeriSign would charge businesses to be included in the
registry, just as it now charges holders of Internet domain names. The actual
call would be charged as usual by the phone-service provider.
