In recent years, advances in speech recognition technology have changed our relationship with computers. There is a variety of software available that allows computers to translate spoken words into text. The ability to dictate emails, documents, and commands directly to a computer benefits businesses and individuals by increasing their productivity. Additionally, these new programs have the ability to adapt to the nuanced speaking patterns and styles of the user in order to enhance performance. Not only can you create text with speech recognition, you can ask your computer questions or command it to perform a task as well. There are many areas of industry, such as journalism, government, healthcare, and law, that can benefit from this type of software.
