Dr. Catriona Wallace, a director of callcentres.net said: "Confidence has emerged as a key factor influencing satisfaction with speech recognition. The research showed that frequent users of speech technology have a statistically significantly higher level of satisfaction with the experience than new or inexperienced users.
"It's also interesting to note that while men are more willing to try speech recognition, it's women who are more likely to become real advocates of the experience once they've used it," Dr. Wallace explained.
