Some research suggests that speech dictation software is hard for novices to use and recommends that it be adapted to their preferred interaction sytle. Older research into how novice users approach new software can provide insights into the preconceptions that novices have about all software and the ways in which dictation software can be redesigned to be aware of these preconceptions. The tendency of novice users to persist with spoken error correction illustrates that novices have an incorrect mental model of dicatation that is closely related to their existing mental model of typing. This paper suggests that dictation software should be redesigned to make clear the differences in use between typing and dictation
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
