Announcer: The e-Learning Lingo Podcast.

Mary Kay Lofurno: Hello. This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director here at SyberWorks, and welcome to the 83rd episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast series.

Last week, Dave Powell talked about “reciprocal training.” This week Dave defines “voice recognition software.” So I ask you, do you know your e-Learning Lingo?

Mary Kay: Hi Dave, so tell us about voice recognition software?

Dave Powell: Voice recognition software is a tool that can be trained to recognize a person's voice, execute their commands, and translate their voice into text or other useful media, including sign language or braille.

Mary Kay: What are some specific ways this tool can be used to complete daily tasks more conveniently?

Dave: Users can place calls quickly by giving a command such as "call home" or they can complete an online transaction by verbally entering credit card information and other data. Preparation of documents, such as those used in medical offices, can also be done more efficiently as users can speak to their computers and have their words converted into text.

Mary Kay: Good stuff, Dave. Have a great afternoon!

Dave: Thank you. You too, talk to you soon!

Mary Kay: This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director at SyberWorks. Thanks for listening to episode 83 of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast.

This week, Dave Powell talked about voice recognition software. The episode 83 podcast audio and transcript will be posted on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast blog.

Next time on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast, we will talk about a term used in education and training. Until that time, have a great week!
