Not sure what they were actually using, but it sounds very much like the
mechanism used by Dragon NaturallySpeaking from ScanSoft. The user speaks
the voice command "mouse grid" to show the initial grid (3 by 3 overlay,
numbered 1 through 9) and then speaks additional numbers to further refine
until they have zeroed in on their target...

Hope this helps...

Cheers,
Derek.
