Today I have tried the using speech recognition software, that comes with Windows Vista.
For the home worker, who is normally working in a quiet and undisturbed environment. There is the opportunity for the use of voice control software to manipulate and drive the interaction between the user and their device. This would not be possible in office environment where the background noise and other activities would make speech recognition almost impossible.
Through the use of a microphone and speech recognition software, which comes as part of the accessibility feature set. Users can train their device software to recognise voice given instruction. While at first there are obvious advantages to controlling and authoring content via speech recognition software, it is a frustrating and tedious task to achieve.
- Resting of the hands
- Poor control
- Lack of recognised menu options
- Time to train both users and computer
I hope this improves because this singular advantage has really been noticed, it could alleviate common discomfort and stress related injuries caused by extensive computer use.
This all blog entry was typed through the use of Speech Recognition software. It was really hard work!
