What is the upside for speech recognition in mobile devices?
Get used to the idea of talking to all your consumer electronics (CE) devices as a primary means of interaction, for this is the future of human interface design, particularly with mobile communication devices.
As mobile speech recognition technologies continue to improve in their efficacy, the vendors of the speech technology platforms are making concerted efforts to enable the long tail of mobile application developers with speech recognition capabilities.
According to the latest market study by ABI Research, the efforts of companies such as Nuance, AT&T, and iSpeech should be noted for exposing their APIs and developer programs as the foremost strategy in reaching the long tail of mobile device applications.
Historically, mobile speech recognition was delivered to consumers through relationships between device OEMs and platform vendors.
Smaller application development efforts lacked the resources and expertise to bring the benefit of speech recognition to their products. This dynamic has kept speech recognition trapped in functionally specific applications.
