Library Journal Review

Thanks applications like Dragon NaturallySpeaking and ViaVoice, the era of talking to computers have begun. These applications are not seamless, but they provide a much more natural interface than drag/click actions. Newman, developer of SayICan.com, a well-regarded web site for information on speech recognition -- how it works, how one teaches a computer to understand speech, and why one would want to do this. This clear easy-to-follow book is recommended for all libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
