Abstract:

How does speech recognition influence the text production process of novice
and experienced speech recognition users? How do professional writers deal
with the special characteristics of speech recognition? How can multimodal
writing processes be observed and analyzed? This book examines these
questions and others.

Compared to speaking, writing is far more complex. Writing can be seen as a
visual representation of spoken language: a combination that speech
recognition takes full advantage of. However, speech recognition causes
unfamiliar errors in the text produced so far. Consequently, writers
develop various strategies to solve these errors. Also, different error
types seem to lead to different error correction strategies.

Research in speech recognition has a double agenda: it examines the
organization of speech recognition based writing processes - speech
recognition as a research object - but also employs speech recognition as a
research instrument. This double approach is demonstrated in the various
research projects in this thesis.
