Voice Search

Definition - What does Voice Search mean?

Voice search is a speech recognition technology that allows a user to perform a search via a voice command. Although designed to be a software application, voice search also may be used as a service by smartphones and other small Web-enabled devices.

Voice search is also known as voice-enabled search.
