Well not exactly! infact Speech Recognition has been a great disappointment. If someone have ever used Speech Recognition on cell phones, someone know exactly what someone talking about. Not only do someone have to train the cell phone to recognize someone's voice but someone have to interface with the name in someone address book as someone say it. Speech Recognition hasn't been very dependable. The success rate of Speech Recognition has been less than steller and for the most part very frustrating.

If you would only use your computer in a closed silent room, never have a cold or other Speech Recognition altering condition, and don't have an accent, Speech Recognition would work and be fabulous most of the time. But how often are you in that situation? The conditions in my life are never perfect for Speech Recognition. someone either talking on the phone with someone in the room with the radio or TV.

Speech Recognition will affect how fast you can do research, surf the Web, write papers, and save time in school and the rest of their life! Every job requires Speech Recognition.
