Speech Recognition Vs. Keyboard

Since speech recognition is already popular nowadays, will this possibly replace keyboarding?


Although speech-recognition, swipes, touchscreens, and thumb-texting can be useful in certain situations, nothing else offers a total replacement for keyboarding. Most observers expect the keyboard + mouse combination to remain the primary input devices at home and work for many years to come., After all, keyboards are familiar, fast, flexible, inexpensive, private, and precise.

Hi, @whitneyortiz!
That’s a very interesting question!

While it’s true that as technology progresses, we become more reliant on it, it’s hard to see speech recognition technology completely removing the need for keyboards. For a quick example, consider moments when typing may be needed without speech involved. Additionally, in English at least, the nuances of grammar are so varied, it would be difficult to accurately represent speech as written text through speech recognition technology alone.

Who knows - as we continue to rely more heavily on technology, perhaps you’re right!
