Just out of curiosity I turned on voice recognition in Windows 7. I skipped the training. Next I read the poem. It got all but one word correct. This was using the built-in microphones on my laptop in a fairly quiet environment. Last time I tried this I don't remember it being nearly as good of an experience. I think general voice recognition can be very sensitive to the particular user's voice. I use Google Voice and I find that the transcript is really hit and miss, however it is hit and miss depending on the speaker. For some callers it is very close to 100% every time that particular caller leaves a message. For others, it can be very bad every single time. Improvements in voice recognition have been slow but not nearly as slow as suggested I think.
