DISH LAUNCHES VOICE REMOTE WITH VOICE RECOGNITION.

DISH has launched its Voice Remote, featuring voice recognition, a clickable touchpad and backlighting. This remote controls navigation, search and content selection on Hopper 3 and 4K Joey set-top boxes.

Roughly half the size of a traditional remote control, Voice Remote fits in the palm of the user's hand, much like a smartphone. DISH designed the remote to interpret natural language, populating search results based on program title, actor or genre, and building contextual searches to narrow options, as desired. It also utilizes voice commands to control basic functions of the receiver, including recording and changing channels.

Voice Remote features two touchpad modes: default displays a blank touchpad allowing navigation tasks, while the numeric mode illuminates a keypad when channel or password entry is preferred.

With the ability to serve as a universal remote, Voice Remote can control up to two IR devices (TV/AUX models). New and existing Hopper 3 and 4K Joey customers can purchase Voice Remote for $30 by calling 1-800-333-DISH or visiting www.dish.com.
