Definition Edit

Speech recognition is

[a]utomated conversion of spoken words into computer-based text. Some speech recognition systems recognize only one person’s voice; others are speaker-independent but recognize a more limited vocabulary. They may recognize continuous speech or, more commonly, require that slight pauses be inserted between words.[1]

Overview Edit

"Today’s speech-recognition programs build on decades of research in artificial intelligence and speech recognition sponsored by both industry and government. AT&T and IBM Corporation maintained programs in the field, as did DARPA, which seeded early work in hidden Markov models on which the first commercial products were based."[2]
