Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to provide a feasibility study for incorporating speech recognition into the Telecommunications Emergency Decision Support System TEDSS developed by the National Communications System NCS and contained on a Compaq 386. The three types of speech recognition systems that were used are the DragonDictate, a software driven system, the Verbex Series 5000, a system contained in a peripheral device, and the KeyTronic Speech Recognition System, a system contained in a keyboard in addition to using speech software. A prototype was developed using the speech systems to determine whether or not TEDSS could be combined successfully with speech recognition. The results indicate that the incorporation of speech recognition into TEDSS is possible with some modifications to TEDSS software and to the Compaq 386.
