Like many other technologies, speech recognition has improved over the years and those advances have led to it being used in many more places.

Despite this, the voice recognition software found in computers, handsets and satnav systems, among others, is far from perfect.

But the shortcomings have not stopped the technology industry from selling the idea of voice interaction in ever more novel ways.

Voice matching systems, for instance, compare a speaker's words to an database of responses. If the user is asked a yes or no question, only those words will be recognised.

Far more complex is proper speech recognition because it requires the understanding of any word said in any sequence.
