However, the advancements in technology have led to the utilization of approaches such as simple pattern recognition, pattern feature and analysis, language modeling and statistical analysis, artificial neural networks, and others. Further technologies such as natural language processing and cognitive computing are being widely used. However, the ease of getting the speech converted to text has narrowed down the strain and the other health issues. Further, the hands-free technology has appealed to many users that are physically disabled and are unable to utilize the regular input devices. For instance, the Dragon Speech Recognition by the Nuance Group comprises of a speech recognition system that converts sound into syllables and then into words.
