Speech Recognition (1)

Speech Recognition software is used to assist individuals who have dexterity limitations that prevent them from accomplishing essential job tasks.  It accomplishes this by allowing an individual to use voice commands rather than a keyboard, mouse or other input device to access programs, applications and documents on a computer.  Speech recognition software can use voice commands to accomplish the same functions as a keyboard or pointing device.
