Wireless Speech Recognition ..

Speech recognition is now primarily wireless; We've migrated fast, to universal wireless access-communcation devices.

Often, the speech recognition is remote based - And the better signal we send it, the better it performs.

Here, we hope you'll find ideas, technology or projects using hands free and/or mobile devices to make wireless speech recognition a rewarding and useful universal tool!

 "The operating system is easier to use. Speech recognition makes it so much more efficient than just using the keyboard," says Satoru, in reference to the Windows Vista™ Speech Recognition system. Using his wireless headset, Satoru performs all his work tasks everyday in Vista absent any keyboarding at all.

 Via the Microsoft.com original article:
"Satoru especially likes the new mouse grid feature of Windows Speech Recognition in Windows Vista. With mouse grid, the computer screen is divided into a grid of nine, with each area numbered sequentially. The user selects an area by voicing the number, which then moves the cursor. The selected area is then further divided into a grid of nine, and the selection process is repeated in order to pinpoint the desired icon or button."
