The State of Speech Recognition on Mobile

Thursday, 10:40am - 11:30am

Learn how you can use speech recognition effectively on mobile platforms. We'll discuss what is speech recognition, go over the current state of the W3C Web Speech API specification including which which vendor's have implemented pieces of the specification. Learn how to smooth over those inconsistencies and contrast this with the native implementation of speech recognition on Android and iOS. Live demo's on how to use speech recognition for dictation, querying the web for answers and translating English to other languages will be performed with full source code available after the presentation.


We'll go over the native options on Android and iOS and delve into the web options.
