Recently, Ask.com has added a new voice-activated facility to its Mobile Directions service. The new feature is known as "Click to Speak."

With this features, users of Ask.com can speak their location and desired destination to receive directions on mobile devices. Now, one can get rid from typing addresses, which can be slow and at times unsafe also. Ask.com has taken the help of the Dial Directions which is the leading provider of voice-activated location-based services to make this innovative feature for its mobile users. In the official blog, it has been mentioned that “With just a click, users can activate a voice activated directions service and within seconds receive a text message with a link to directions. The new capability incorporates technology from our East Bay neighbors, Dial Directions."

Users of the Directions service on Ask.com can see a new "Click to Speak" option. With simply clicking it, users are prompted to speak their location and their desired destination, either by specific address or closest intersection. It will just take some time before they will get a text message with a link to directions that can be viewed in either traditional list or turn-by-turn step format, with an additional option to switch between “Driving” or "Walking" routes.
