Thinking Aloud

How cool would it be if/when telephony advances to the point where we're able to pick up the phone from the cradle and speak words similiar to URLs on the net?

So, instead of dialing a number that one has to look up, place on speed dial, or actually physically dial, we could call out the name of the person/company we want to reach? Perhaps, initially, our Ma Bells allow us to do a voice-dial similiar to that on our mobiles, but eventually, all numbers would be converted over to words. For instance, we would speak:

US>Raleigh>Restaurants>EVOO>Reservations

How cool would that be?

Cool! But what would I do with this southern accent? Think it would work?

Perhaps it could be open source (ala urban dictionary) where folks enter several pronunciations for one word. :)
