Sample text

Today, that consistency is lacking for voice interfaces. It is one experience to call to get directory assistance, for example, and quite another to call a contact center and be presented with a menu, and yet another to dictate a text message. At the time of this writing, when the average person is asked about their interaction with a voice interface, they mention call centers. To the degree there is uniformity in call center speech interactions, it is a “directed-dialog” model, where the caller is told what they can say at every step.

Today’s systems require such a hint. ) In a voice user interface, there will be categories of functionality such as navigating to an application on the phone, connecting to a network-based service, dialing­a contact, conducting a web search, dictating a text message, etc. The user can learn quickly that keywords such as “search,” “dial,” or “dictate a message” will make the result more reliable, and the system’s job in interpreting at least the ­general context of the message is limited to the domains it can handle.

The composer can also edit the message before sending it. A voice command must, in contrast, be understood by the computer. Thus, the task for dictation is different. It is harder in some ways and easier in others than a “say what you want” user interface. The mobile phone being a personal device eases the dictation task. Most dictation systems tune both to the vocabulary usage and voice of the user. One dictation application for mobile phones downloads and incorporates contact names (if the owner allows) and can thus be accurate in transcribing proper names that are in the contact database.
