    This was a great view into today's world of voice, Mr. Sejnoha! I have been using (trying to use, I should say) voice recognition since 1998 when I began working remotely from my office jobs full time. With scores of emails and reports to write, it worked OK after much training of software and myself. Today, I agree that "transcription" has come a long way, but that is only one aspect of voice. The NLU capability has jumped leaps and bounds in the last 12 months for sure. One still wants to do multiple actions however. After saying "search for California poppy image" I want to say "tweet image number 5" from the list of images. Even clicking a link in a web browser after a search does not work. And these are very simple actions . . . nothing like the Star Trek statements: "computer: find all california poppy images and display the most popular one that is at least 3000 pixels wide and in black and white".
