Abstract

This paper presents an evaluation of an off-the-shelf commercial speech recognition system. It focuses particularly on two problems. The first problem is how to develop a robust mental model of continuous speech recognition and its use in document preparation. The second is how to learn relevant new work practices in this context. The paper identifies such new work practices and discusses issues that confuse users and hinder their development of a robust mental model. It also suggests how documentation and training might address these matters.
