Abstract

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) offers the potential for significant produc-tivity improvements for creation of written material as compared to handwriting or typing that material. Also, productivity in information handling and problem solving will be improved because of the faster, more natural speech interface.

RECOGNITION COMPONENTS

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) offers the potential for significant produc- tivity improvements for creation of written material as compared to handwriting or typing that material. Also, productivity in information handling and problem solving will be improved because of the faster, more natural speech interface.

The processing power required for ASR is great as well as the cost. Providing ASR capability by having an automatic speech recognition server on a network, e.g., an Ethernet network, will allow the cost to be shared by a number of workstations. In this way, the cost per workstation will be low enough to allow significant savings to each workstation user due to improved productivity.

The concept is illustrated in the figure. The workstation will, as a minimum, have a partial page display and text editing capability. There could also be included a keyboard and cursor control to be used for recognition system training, text correction and editing; or the keyboard and cursor could be eliminated and their functions replaced by recognition of spoken commands.
