Speech Recognition Software For Mac OSXOn our Mac compatible voice recognition and dictation software page we look at some of the current and historical speech applications for Mac OS.
The evolution of speech to text, text to speech and Mac computer vocal command and control has a long growth trajectory. Apple's inclusion of Dictation Services starting with OSX Mountain Lion has steadily improved. Uupdates to OSX Mavericks, Yosemite, ElCapitan. MacOS Sierra, Mojave and Catalina incorporate Siri support. And, Apple continues to advance it's recognition accuracy and adds additional voice commands for editing, punctuation and formatting.
The Growing Adoption Of Speech-Driven ComputingAdoption and demand is only increasing as voice responsive software becomes integrated not only into MacBook laptops and Macintosh desktops via MacOS - but with Siri on handheld Apple IOS devices like the iPhone and iPad as well. What was once a novelty or a narrow niche application for handicapped accessibility is now entering the mainstream for everyday writing, computer navigation, or information gathering tasks. Apple's new Siri-based HomePod smart-speaker will take voice recognition to new levels of home automation, information access and music playback control.
Improved Vocal RecognitionSeveral technical factors have also driven the expansion of speech-based computing. Far faster microprocessors can handle the digitization and analysis of the spoken audio waveform quite rapidly. Far more sophisticated spell-check and grammar algos are deciphering meaning and intent of phrases to put spoken words in proper context and in real-time as they appear onscreen. Auto-correct functions can interpret and fix spoken content dynamically and on the fly to deliver highly readable speech to text results that were undreamed of just a handful of years ago.
