Voice and remote control manufacturer Innotech has introduced the Accenda Voice Control for iPod, a new accessory that will allow iPod users to control their devices with voice commands. The Voice Control consists of a small in-line box that attaches to the iPod’s Dock Connector and provides a headphone output with a bass-boost function. Once connected to the iPod, the Voice Control listens for the word “iPod,” and then listens for the voice command and performs the desired operation. Commands for the Voice Control include adjusting of the volume, play, stop, next/previous track, and replay song. The Voice Control can be worn around a user’s neck or clipped to a shirt or lapel, and is compatible with all Dock-connecting iPods, save for the third-generation iPod. The Accenda Voice Control for iPod will sell for $100 and is expected to be available in September.
