Voice Interaction: Putting Intelligence into the Interface

March 15, 1982

Chris Schmandt, Eric A. Hulteen


Although the natural nature of speech suggests its use as an input medium to computer systems, current speech recognition hardware does not perform adequately for general purpose use with large vocabularies. A methodology is described for design of an interface module consisting of both hardware and software mediating between the speaker and application processes. The goal is communication, with its implication of intelligence and ~riteraction, by this context sensitive interface.
