    Sadly the license for Voice Command expressly forbids programmatic use of it's functionality. Microsoft licenses the speech engine used from a third-party and so are limited in what usage is allowed.

    I've not seen any products specifically aimed at plugging in voice functionality into a Windows Mobile device and exposing an API - you'll either need to look at the big names such as ScanSoft who can provide a SAPI compliant voice engine, or more consumer oriented offerings which rarely provide an API.

    I've certainly asked this question myself of Microsoft before, it's not a technical limitation but a licensing one, and hopefully can be improved on in a future generation of voice command.

  • BTW: Looking at some of the files that compose Voice Command it looks that Microsoft licensed the technology from ScanSoft.  They are best known for a product called "Dragon Naturally Speaking."

  • casey from brains-n-brawn wrote an article back in 2003 on how to create voice command functionality on Win Mobile.  It is possible with some effort.
