I have always believed in speech recognition technology, even though it is not perfect, it’s a really great start. While a lot of the time the results can be amusing or frustrating to some, if you use it and learn how it works it can really be useful. Amazon is releasing their own technology that will bring this voice recognition to all. It of course will have its issues as well, but as with any of the current speech technologies, it can be fun and useful. Google has their own too but most of this information will pertain to using Siri on IOS since that is what I have access to. I made the following videos a long time ago, but almost all of it is still valid.
