Voice Recognition Versus Typing

Why is typing better than voice recognition?


Voice-to-text and other keyboard alternatives have limitations for written expression. These technologies can adequately reproduce simple thoughts, especially in the informal register of oral speech. However, people expect ideas and stories to be converted into rich writing that is well developed, clearly organized, and solidly supported. This is a cognitive task that requires competent typing.

Hi Wesley,

You bring up an interesting question. It is possible in long run, but speech recognition software has a long way to go to make it 100% transferable. I use speech to text often in my work. I always need to go back and reread my work to edit what the computer heard. I am still using my touch typing skills on a daily basis.
