Microsoft Recite is an application program for Windows Mobile devices that enables user to search in voice recording. With Microsoft Recite, user can simply use the voice to easily store as sound clips, and then search and retrieve the audio clips which contained specific said phrase user wants to remember, where and when user needs them.

There are plenty of voice recording device in the market, but most does not allow user to search the content in the audio clip after saving. Recite will change the trend, and make the voice recording, or voice note searchable.

In the announcement, Microsoft describes that Recite voice search makes it easy to retrieve your stored thoughts and notes by using voice pattern matching. It analyzes the patterns in your speech and finds matches between two recordings — the notes you stored on your phone, and the search you do using your voice. With Recite you can store thousands of spoken notes, and then later retrieve the notes you want based on a match with your search term(s). This is different from speech recognition, which has to accurately convert spoken words to application-readable input.
