Voice Recognition Software Finally Beats Humans At Typing, Study Finds | EdTech Evolution – Mapping the Intersection of tech, innovation, and instruction

“Computers have already beaten us at chess, Jeopardy and Go, the ancient board game from Asia. And now, in the raging war with machines, human beings have lost yet another battle — over typing.

Turns out voice recognition software has improved to the point where it is significantly faster and more accurate at producing text on a mobile device than we are at typing on its keyboard. That’s according to a new study by Stanford University, the University of Washington and Baidu, the Chinese Internet giant. The study ran tests in English and Mandarin Chinese.” | EdTech Evolution – Mapping the Intersection of tech, innovation, and instruction
