Abstract:

This report describes an experiment in which military officers used voice recognition equipment to verbally enter commands to a computer network similar to that of a command and control center, or a shipboard information center. Results suggest that voice input can result in faster operation and fewer errors for such activities and give the operator more time to do other things. In addition, operators are very comfortable using voice input because of the more natural man-machine interface. Author
