Voice Recognition Software Demo on August 25

By Doug Kreitz

BSD, in partnership with the Medical Department and SCS, will sponsor a one-hour open discussion and live demonstration of voice recognition software on Wednesday, August 25, at 2:00 p.m. in Panofsky Auditorium. The meeting is open to everyone in the SLAC community who would like to learn more about this innovative technology.

Voice recognition software allows a PC user to use his/her voice as an input device. It may be used to dictate text into the computer or to give computer commands (such as opening application programs, pulling down menus or saving work).

For routine tasks such as creating documents, entering data, launching applications, sending e-mail, completing forms and browsing the Web, this software is especially useful for avoiding Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI). It assists those who currently suffer from any repetitive stress problems in the hands, arms or wrists. This technology also addresses Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 508 mandates.
