Part of the Executive Guides book series (3233)


In this chapter I am going to describe interviews I have conducted with five different users of speech recognition software. Each of these users was using a different speech product, and they had vastly different circumstances. The case studies are as follows:
  1. Case study 1

    Director of international interior design contractors using CADSpeak for Windows.

  2. Case study 2

    Senior partner from a small London firm of solicitors using DragonDictate Classic.

  3. Case study 3

    RSI sufferer using Shakespeare DOS Speech Writer.

  4. Case study 4

    Partially sighted trust manager from a large London firm of solicitors using OfficeSpeak Lite.

  5. Case study 5

    IT coordinator from a major UK bank using the IBM PDS.
