Speech technology in real world environment: early results from a long term study
Existing knowledge on how people use speech-based technologies in realistic settings is limited. We are conducting a longitudinal field study, spanning six months, to investigate how users with no physical impairments and users with upper body physical impairments use speech technologies when interacting with computers in their home environment. Digital data logs, time diaries, and interviews are being used to record the types of applications used, frequency of use of each application, and difficulties experienced as well as subjective data regarding the usage experience. While confirming many expectations, initial results have provided several unexpected insights including a preference to use speech for navigation instead of dictation tasks, and the use of speech technology for programming and games.
