Advantages / Disadvantages Of Speech Recognition
- Speech is a very natural way to interact, and it is not necessary to sit at a keyboard or work with a remote control.
- No training required for users!
- Even the best speech recognition systems sometimes make errors. If there is noise or some other sound in the room (e.g. the television or a kettle boiling), the number of errors will increase.
- Speech Recognition works best if the microphone is close to the user (e.g. in a phone, or if the user is wearing a microphone). More distant microphones (e.g. on a table or wall) will tend to increase the number of errors.
