Speech recognition technologies are becoming more accurate, versatile, and ubiquitous. We will begin with a review of the latest versions of Dragon software and explore what is new, including its “deep learning” technology and Dragon Anywhere option. Built-in and after-market tools for maximizing success will be presented. Then we will shift focus to discuss the emergence of speech to control the Internet of Things, as well as the potential game-changing impact of “deep neural networks” on interactive voice systems. Significant time will be provided for attendee questions and input.
