Does voice recognition know what you’re talking about?

John Moe Jun 10, 2010

On today’s show we talk about new technology that lets you and your car have a conversation. Well, maybe not a conversation, per se, more just information and commands. It all hinges, of course, on a computer being able to figure out what the heck you’re saying. What have your experiences been with voice recognition either in cars or phone answering systems or anywhere else?

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
