Stanford University's Experiment Shows Writing Via Speech Recognition Is Now Up To Three Times Faste
You've watched the Star Trek shows, or any number of sci-fi programs or movies where people talk to computers in natural language... and the computer UNDERSTANDS and responds QUICKLY? Well, in the real world, we are getting there fast! Stanford ran an experiment that compared the speed and accuracy of computers producing the printed word from voice sources (e.g. people speaking) vs. typing.
In a recent experiment, Stanford researchers found that Baidu's speech recognition software composes text messages three times faster and is more accurate than human typists.
