"For more traffic safety": speech recognition and sms in the car

The speech recognition continues to continue: in addition to the most practical dictation in the pc, it is always more and more in the car, so that the driver can leave the hands on the steering wheel

A speed of up to 160 words per minute and a recognition rate of up to 99 percent also without prior language training promises the current version 9 of the pc speech recognition software dragon naturally speaking of the company, the fruhe dragon, then scansoft and currently nuance is called. In fact, a lane improvement against version 8 (computer, dictation!) be detected. The program can not only accept dictates, but also voice commands for the pc control for use in disabled or persons with rsi complaints ("mouse arm") or carpal tunnel syndrome.

Instead of keyboard folding course, dictation plappers in the waiting hall

The manufacturer does not dislike pc software for speech recognition. He is also involved in "embedded" solutions, so advised to recognize the ex works voice commands. Typical are the latest mobile phones with bluetooth interfaces that allow speech-controlled elections because it brings little if a hands-free system first freed the hand from the phone and one again – even more distracting and also prohibited – to access the election of a number to the phone.

But nuance wants to bring more and more voice control into the car. Whately not wordworthy ("left, past the fubganger … Please do not drive the fukganger … I said not drive around!!!"), but for electronic accessories. Phones, but also car radios with mp3 collection (ravel, bolero!") and navigation gates (" schleibheimerstrabe 918!") respond as well as the air conditioning system for a future.

"Dissate now, recognize later!": instead of speech recognition with the pc can only be talked about a dictation apparatus

So practically sms for lower teenagers and bored managers in the conference room are, so densely, they are on driving: it beeps and you have to drive out extra on the next highway parking lot to read the expected sms of the boss with the appointment then naturally promptly as "samantha awaits you in chat, chic i’m sharply in sam, only 5 euros" turned out and passfully has to be lolled, so again space in the device for the appointment is from the boss. Even worse, if you should answer – under the driving complete unthinkable. Who will be "zaher traffic announced, only dropped by 5" on the other hand, if he is already in a traffic jam, could be a "back to the buro, car and key, they are justified!"Get to answer.

A study commissioned at the beginning of the year by nuance under just under 2.000 mobile phone customers in the us and the great britain found, among other things, that over 75 percent of the interviewed interest in the use of voice commands to simplify the numbers of numbers and calling the advanced functions of the mobile phone, especially when driving. Respondents from the gobritain (sms are not yet so widespread in the usa) showed an extremely rough interest in text messages: 90 percent of the participants from the great britain use text messages at least once a week, opposite 48 percent of the participants from the usa. 60 percent of respondents stated that they were likely to use dictation technologies for entering sms and e-mails, and 46 percent said they were likely to use a voice application that allows activation of mp3 players without access or eye-catching.

Nuance language solutions are currently being used in more than 50 million mobile phones from manufacturers such as lg, motorola, nokia, samsung, sanyo and siemens. A second study carried out half a year later among around 1000 vehicle owners from germany, japan and the us was scary, because it revealed that a growing number of drivers for reading (20%) and the sending (16%) of sms news take the view from the strain. 60% of the interviewed vehicle operators are looking for the journey in the address book of their mobile phones according to there stored contact data. 76% of the interviewed drivers provide destinations or destinations in the navigation system during driving. And even though the majority here indicated that voice control was safer to drive safer, they do not use them yet.

However, whether the reading of the sms’s safety really increases, if the passengers then ask who was samantha is another question. After all, the sms will not be completely read completely, but only at the request of the driver. And even more speech recognition is used in call centers. However, the version for loading is missing in the local telephone system, the call center calls to characteristic features ("i do not want to sell you," i speak to mr. Roth?", …) recognizes and filters.

No more around the navigation system, that promises the embedded speech recognition
