Command and Dictation vocabulary support for mobile and Mac platforms expands app possibilities

Recognizing speech on mobile platforms is sometimes referred to as push-to-talk: you speak, audio is captured, transcribed, and returned as text. Utterances are used by most assist applications to perform a variety of information retrieval tasks.

With command-based recognition, all types of applications are now possible using speech recognition. This is because recognized speech can be matched and associated with properties that drive data capture, selection, and navigational tasks.

Dictation-based or continuous recognition is also supported where utterance capture continues for long annotations until stopped by the app.

Mobile and Mac apps now enjoy vocabulary options that Windows desktop apps have leveraged for years. Get the details in Knowledge Base article H072203.

The Command and Dictation samples are now available for Android (Android Studio), iOS (Xcode), and macOS (Xcode) platforms and for RAD Studio (C++Builder and Delphi).
