Aggelos Katsaggelos, Professor & AT&T Chair was quoted in an Chicago Tribune article, titled, "My Wife the Dentist and Other Misadventures with Speech-to-text Technology" by Eric Zorn, published on Thursday, June 12, 2014.
In the article, Prof. Katsaggelos is interviewed reguarding the inability of voice-to-text programs to transcribe slightly complicated speech correctly. He is quoted as referring to the difficulty of identifying phonemes or our tendency to eliminate or elide syllables, as "reduced speech." Katsaggelos then goes on to predict that the day when all of your mobile devices will be able understand every nuance of speech to text will be "five to 10 years."
