VoiteQ, provider of hands-free, eyes-free voice directed distribution systems for the warehouse, will be demonstrating the new Talkman T5 voice directed picking device from Vocollect, for the first time in the UK, at Retail Solutions 2006, 6th June 8th June on Stand D52.

The Talkman T5 is a wearable computer consisting of a securely fastened belt unit and headset. Instructions for the days picking are sent over the RF network by the host system to the workers voice device. This method of warehouse picking results in a smoother, more continuous operation, increasing productivity and accuracy.

VoiteQ will be inviting visitors to try out the ease of operation of the Talkman T5 by taking part in a World Cup or General Knowledge quiz using the Talkman T5 headset and wearable computing technology to answer questions. A bottle of the finest Dom Perignon champagne will be awarded to the highest scoring participant with the fastest time on each day of the show.

The Talkman T5 is the latest in wearable computing technology; it is the smallest and lightest device in its class, making it easier for pickers to use. It incorporates a range of new functionality which include:-  

         Auto log-in

         Bluetooth Connectivity

         12+ hours battery life

         Improved voice recognition

The auto log-in feature means that each device will instantly recognise the individual warehouse operative. As soon as a team member connects his or her headset to the T5 terminal, their personal voice profile is automatically verified. With a quick password, assignments are downloaded and they are ready to work. This reduces the time it takes for picking to begin at the start of a shift increasing efficiency.

Bluetooth Connectivity is built into each Talkman T5 device as standard; this allows wireless connection between headset and terminal giving the operative greater flexibility. A wireless Bluetooth connection can also be established between the terminal and external devices such as printers and scanners.

The Talkman T5 has a high-performance battery designed to provide extended full shift of service. Operatives will not have to interrupt their assignments to change batteries. It has also been tested in extremely cold environments and still maintains the highest performance.

Operatives have a greater range of voice functions to choose from on the Talkman T5 including nine different speeds of picking with up to 400 words per minute delivered through the headset. The speech recognition engine is available in 14 languages and operatives can respond in any language or dialect.
