Aspects of Research

Performing research for a speech-recognition system is not done in a vacuum; there is always a goal on which to focus as we gain more information. Elements of this include researching with an eye toward creating an easy-to-use application, where the terminology is audience-appropriate. A helpful technique is to perform a morphological analysis to examine the problem at hand by looking at other similar problems and relating information gleaned from those solutions to our own. Particularly in a speech environment, it's important to look at these situations carefully and understand that there can be a difference between what clients say they want and what they actually want, the speech system to do—they may be two different things. We also must examine limitations that may limit aspects of the system by performing feasibility and risk assessments.

It's important to remember that when you finish the research phase, you should have a full understanding of the requirements of the system. At that moment the designer and the client will agree on what the completed system will comprise. This will all be documented in a Requirements Specification.
