Speech Input

I’ve been using speech input for more than two decades after a bout with repetitive strain injuries in my hands. I use Dragon Pro Individual with two add-ons: Intag, which numbers elements like buttons and links, and Utter Command, which allows you to say command phrases.

I developed Utter Command and I train people to use speech input efficiently.

I’m currently working on making the words and rules I use in Utter Command open source and more portable.

Here’s nice take on Human-Machine Grammar and Utter Command from James Stout’s Hands-Free Coding blog.Feel free to contact me if you’re interested in helping the effort.

Here’s a video showing Utter Command in action.The Utter Command documentation is at the bottom of the UC Knowledge Base page.

The text and slides from the presentation I gave at AccessU include my latest thoughts on using speech input: Including Speech Input Users: What’s frustrating, what’s needed – 2018 update (PDF, slides)
