The Voice Navigator from Articulate Systems let Mac users control their systems via voice commands. There were two generations of the Voice Navigator hardware, as well as a software-only "SW" version.

MOST SIGNIFICANT HARDWARE PRODUCT: Voice Navigator
When we first saw a prerelease version of Articulate Systems' speech recognition system, Voice Navigator, we expected it to be a crude and buggy experiment. We were amazed. Even then, it ran smoothly and effectively. As we watched it evolve, one thing became clear: Speech recognition is a vitally important computer technology.

BEST INPUT DEVICE: Voice Navigator II
We considered Articulate Systems' Voice Navigator promising last year (and rewarded that promise with the Most Significant Hardware Product Eddy). The product has matured into Voice Navigator II, which now has a sensitive unidirectional microphone that replaces the awkward headphones of the previous version.

Voice-recognition products have always generated special excitement among computer users, especially those who need hands-free input. It's hard not to be intrigued by the thought of our machines working with us on a more human level. In the past, products such as Apple's PlainTalk and Articulate's Voice Navigator turned out to be busts when real people tried to do real work with them. But what makes PowerSecretary unique is that it actually works.
