About a month ago, I got into a brief Twitter conversation with the brilliant fellow who wrote Annyang, Tal Ater. Twitter sadly does not do a great job of threading the conversation, but there were some excellent points made. I wanted to share them with the Mojo Lingo audience.
You can read the whole exchange below, but I think there are a few key takeaways:
- Browser-based speech recognition is important, and will become even more important
- Browser-based speech recognition has a way to go to be universally available and as useful as it should be to developers (and, ultimately, to users)
- This area is getting a lot of attention, especially from developers
- We need browser makers to get this done!
- As speech recognition continues to get cheaper, more accurate, and more widely available, some really exciting products will become reality
Here is the entire conversation:
Thanks Tal for your insight, and thank you for Annyang. I look forward to continuing the conversation and working together for a better, more speech-enabled world.
