Xerox Natural Voice Color

The Innovation Group at Xerox today revealed that it had developed a technique which could help virtually any user edit photos. Currently named Natural Language Color Editing, the system uses voice activation to translate common spoken descriptions of colors into the actual numerical values the computer uses for its color range. Editors could ask to make the sky a deeper blue, for example, or ask the computer to boost the intensity of the purple in the entire scene.

The system would make color correction possible for newcomers and should also let professionals make simpler changes without costly tools other than a PC and a microphone, Xerox says. The technology is still in its early form but could appear in image editing software and even LCD-equipped printers within the next few years.
