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.

Type. It's private and more considerate.

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.

I am too lazy to talk. :)

Depends if I'm alone or not

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

37 out of 38 times voice recognition doesn't even work.

Thats what calling and voicemail is for. When i text or answer other peoples text i dont want anyone to hear it. If i want to hear there voice i call them.

06/03/14 8:48 pm

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

I wouldn't want people to hear me say, " I'll be there in 5 minutes, don't touch the body till then"

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

My phone's voice recognition is better than it's autocorrect.

06/04/14 7:23 am

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 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. ????

I could never get used to talking to Siri on a regular basis. I'd rather type in commands discreetly, instead of declaring aloud "Google search: boobs"

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.

I use it a lot already, and would love to be able to use it more.

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.

My phones voice recognition is annoying as hell in the fact that it mishears everything I say

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?

06/03/14 7:44 pm

Unless I'm completely private I don't want my texts known to everyone. Typing will do.

Typing is more private and annoys fewer people.

Then that's dictation, not voice recognition.

06/05/14 3:33 pm

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.
