Title: [Speech Input to Enhance Writing]

David talks while facing the camera.

David: “The things that I’ve found really helpful have been speech-to-text programs, you know, you talk to your computer and it writes.”

A person wearing a headset is talking into a microphone while looking at a computer screen. As he speaks, each word is displayed on the computer screen.

Person working: “The University of Washington released the most comprehensive examination…”

David: “I’ve written papers at college in a quarter of the time that it would have taken me to type them by hand. With speech-to-text, I just say the word and it shows up on the screen.”
