Another model available is dictating into a “clipboard” application that is part of the phone’s operating system. The contents of the clipboard can be pasted into most applications. One deficit of these approaches as they have been implemented to date is a lack of interactivity. , displaying a list of search results. There is no dialog. Dialog is a powerful way to resolve ambiguities. For example, in web search, there is often a number of ways to interpret a search request, and a long results list with many non-responsive options is more difficult to view on a mobile phone.

These simple facts are not a simple development. The personal phone is a ­fundamental paradigm shift. There are a number of components to this shift that can make a voice interface more effective: 1. Personalization: A wireless phone identifies itself and implicitly identifies you when it places a call. If a caller elects to use a service that employs personalization, the service can remember preferences and tendencies from call to call. Speech recognition can be more accurate when one can bias it toward previous choices of the individual and even their specific voice and pronunciation.

Consistency has been key in driving the acceptance of GUI interfaces; pointing and menu selection, for example, is a familiar process despite many different details. Today, that consistency is lacking for voice interfaces. It is one experience to call to get directory assistance, for example, and quite another to call a contact center and be presented with a menu, and yet another to dictate a text message.
