Abstract:

This research investigates the use of a voice recognition system by military operators -- officer, enlisted, male and female. The application intended is the use of a discrete utterance voice recognition system in a command center environment. The system would be used by members of a watch team to execute ad hoc queries against an automated data base in support of their command center duties. The following factors were examined the adaptability of a random sample of active duty military personnel to a voice input system the accuracy of such a system the effects of male versus female operators and the effects of officer versus enlisted operators -- the advantagesdisadvantages of using three, five or ten trained passes to train the voice system. Results showed no significant difference in error rates between the categories of officer and enlisted nor between male and female. Three training passes had a slightly higher error rate than five or ten passes but five and ten passes were the same. Author
