Speech command recognition and pen input

A number of application areas are possible [74]:

  1. ink and speech annotation of existing documents
  2. pointing by pen, data or modifier input by voice
  3. the combined pen/voice typewriter: text input
The interesting functionality is derived from the complementarity of the two human output channels. Pointing to objects by speech is dull, slow and error-prone. Thus for pointing, the pen may be used. Similarly, for symbolic data entry, speech is a fast and natural channel. In text input, the combined recognition of speech and handwriting may considerably improve recognition rates.
