13. Speech to text

I beleive what is happening in many areas of technology, including speech-to-text, is that the heavy work end of the service is moving away from the end user and onto the internet. So in the past, to search the web using speech-to-text you had to have the software installed locally. But now you can speak to the mobile phone and the search is carried out using speech-to-text that is held online. It will only be a matter of time before there is full speech-to-text for ordinary document writing online too.
