Yes, we do need to be concerned about IK's. They are a
labor-saving device, just like automatic teller machines and
telephone information systems. In fact, I see the systems for
providing bus schedule information, job announcements, and
dial-in newspapers as the best analogy of how a user interface
will have to work.
I don't think changing the speed of the voice, or having an
external keypad, or an interface port, will be practical. You'll
be lucky to get a volume control.
These devices usually have a touch screen. Maybe we can get it
divided into a grid of about 8 sections. For the keyboard, they
ought to go to voice recognition, my boss says.
