National Instititute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) of Japan claims that its "speech completion" technology is a first. Mutter a half-considered thought into the microphone and the software will plunder a database to complete half-formed words or sentences - in Japanese, at least.

The system looks for fragments of words and other signs of hesitation such as filler sounds that Japanese speakers use when searching for their next phrase, just as English speakers "um" and "er".

The software could make speech-rocognition software more powerful by increasing the speed and accuracy with which you can dictate long and difficult words and common phrases.
