"In my experience, speech is one of the least effective, inefficient forms of communicating with other human beings." You might be forgetting just how much information we can transmit through so few words, with things like tone, inflection, etc. The issue with language is that each message is not self-contained; on the contrary, it depends fundamentally on the information each party already has. So I think the problem here is not the inefficiency of language but rather the immense difficulty of digitally recreating a system of such complexity. Of course, one reason for using speech recognition is to reduce the learning curve for computer use. But we've seen how this level of intuitiveness can be reached without speech recognition in software like the iPhone OS.
