This category tracks significant software/hardware advances, companies and sites in the area of speech processing, recognition and voice control for computers.
Speech recognition provides the ability for computers, cars, domestic utilities, etc to recognize what words a user is saying. For example a car may be able to recognize a driver saying “cd” to turn on the CD player, or “wipers” to turn on windscreen wipers. A word processor on a PC may be able to recognize what is said to and automatically type it into a document
Voice recognition is usually just used as another term for Speech Recognition. However occasionally it is used to mean a computer/device recognizing someone’s unique voice rather than what they are actually saying.
This category does not, therefore, take "speech recognition" to be synonymous with "voice recognition."
