Speech Recognition Programs

Speech recognition programs accept and interpret spoken commands to insert text and issue program commands. This process typically involves four steps.

  1. Training. The user trains the speech recognition program to recognize his speech patterns.
  2. Input. Using a microphone, the user issues verbal commands or dictate text.
  3. Analysis. The audio signals from the microphone are digitized so that the system unit can process the information.
  4. Action. The interpreted word or phrase is then implemented.
