If voice recognition were just as accurate and widely available as your phone's keyboard+autocorrect feature, which method of input would you use more often?

Voice in private so I can multitask, but text in public so everyone doesn't know my conversations.

Mid-meeting your boss says, "God you have a sexy ass."

"Sorry. Not harassment. New phone feature."

If you're talking to send a message, and the other person talks to send you a message... Why not just, oh, you know, talk to each other??

If I were alone, talk. In a room with people, definitely type. I like my privacy.

Depends if I'm alone or not

If I'm always dictating to my phone I'm sure somebody will punch me.

If I'm alone I use voice recognition anyway, but in public or around other people I type.

Talking is just awkward for everyone around you... At that point, might as well pick up the phone and call them.

My husband cannot spell accurately, nor does he speak english accurately. so when he tries to talk to thevoice gadget in the phone, it has NO idea what hes saying....it also has no idea what he is typing. I think its funny

You can always use the talk to text when alone. It doesn't have to annoy people.
I like it for driving and also for keeping my thumbs from hurting. ????

With my husband usually suffering from a migraine, he is very sensitive to sound. I need to keep quiet or I will make his head feel even worse. So, no talking to the computer.

Type. Even though it's my opinion that if I annunciate clearly voice IS as accurate as typing, and unquestionably faster. Typing is less annoying to fellow pedestrians.

Most times that I use my phone, I need to be more discreet. Using the voice recognition feature would just be rude. But I do use Siri to text for me while I'm driving, to set reminders/appointments in my phone, and sometimes to search.

Yeah I hate people with Bluetooth talking into space. Twenty years ago they'd have gotten locked up for communicating with the dead in a public place. Aye, most certainly they're guilty your honor. Have you ever seen a sane person talk to ghosts?

Problem for me I guess. Siri asked me if I could spend time with him so he could learn how I talked. So much for modern technology.
