Save time by talking to your computer!

Technology concepts are changing every day, and speech recognition is no different. What is speech recognition? Any technology that allows you turn talk into text! Dragon NaturallySpeaking is one of these technologies, and you may not even know that you are using it. If you have a new iPhone and are using Siri, that is a form of speech recognition. Siri is listening to your words and commands and performing the actions you are requesting. How about Android users?
