Do speech commands, or speech to text apps help or hurt our actual speech abilities?

Asked by RealEyesRealizeRealLies (30960points) November 24th, 2013

I think speech ware might be teaching me how to construct more properly formed sentences that actually express my thoughts more meaningfully than had they just been spoken aloud, without edit, to a friend.

What do you think?

My speech skills are impeccable.

Siri loves me.

I hate having to over-enunciate.

I’m from New York. I talk quickly. Keep up, silly phone.

Siri doesn’t understand me. Even my ex wife used to understand me; Siri is obnoxious.

After I get off the phone with a company that employs voice prompts I always cut people off use incomplete sentences and sound very clipped.

I tried speech ccommands on my phone a handful of times and refraines from throwing the device.

I’ve never bothered with speech-to-text apps. My partner has tried it, because he drives and its useful for him to be able to speak a text message, but those messages often arrive garbled. I don’t think his phone has quite learned his Geordie accent yet.

I don’t use them. That would account for my awful speling.
