You arrive at your desk in the morning and sit down in front of your computer. Instead of issuing a voice command to your PC, or reciting an email, or dictating a memo to your boss, you start typing and clicking. In the environs of the office, where speech technology could save us time and make us more productive, most of us are still stuck with keyboards and mice.
