Speech recognition programs accept and interpret spoken commands to insert text and issue program commands. This process typically involves four steps.
- Training. The user trains the speech recognition program to recognize his speech patterns.
- Input. Using a microphone, the user issues verbal commands or dictate text.
- Analysis. The audio signals from the microphone are digitized so that the system unit can process the information.
- Action. The interpreted word or phrase is then implemented.
