Far more people today have access to a telephone than have access to a computer with an Internet connection. In addition, sales of cellphones are booming, so that many of us have already or soon will have a phone within reach wherever we go. Voice Browsers offer the promise of allowing everyone to access web-based services from any phone, making it practical to access the web any time and anywhere, whether at home, on the move, or at work. The W3C is working to expand access to the web to allow people to interact with websites via spoken commands and listening to prerecorded speech, music and synthetic speech. This will allow any telephone to be used to access web-based services and will be a boon to people with visual impairments or needing web access while keeping their hands and eyes free for other things.
