I’m curious if anyone knows of any interesting applications of speech technology within the church. I am aware of a few people who have talked about them, but not very many that have actually been used. Here are a few I know of, either actual or speculative:
1. I have heard of people using commercial speech recognition software to prepare talks.
2. I know of one ward where an enterprising member got the bishopric’s permission to record the sacrament meeting talks digitally, for eventual audio indexing. (E.g. What was that talk last year where they talked about Elder Holland’s missionary experience?)
3. I know of several members who use speech recognition to produce reasonable transcriptions within a church setting.
I’d like to know more about anything like this that other are aware of.
