  • Publication number: 20140156272
    Abstract: A mobile electronic device such as a smart phone receives a spoken vehicle identification number (VIN) by a user. The smart phone device interprets the spoken input as interpreted text. The device removes any spaces, punctuation, words, or sound-alike words from the interpreted text. The device replaces any prohibited characters with corresponding acceptable letters. The device displays the resulting character string as a VIN to the user for comparison to the VIN on a vehicle. The device may communicate to a database to obtain make, model, and model year information corresponding to the VIN and display that vehicle information to the user for confirmation.
