10. Will voice recognition systems ever be able to recognize continuous speech?

We have discussed that current voice recognition systems require the user to use "discrete speech" (i.e., inserting a brief pause between words during dictation). Several manufacturers are working on "continuous speech" voice recognition systems that will be able to recognize continuous strings of words more analogous to typical speech. Currently several systems do have a "continuous number generator." This means that a user can enter a string of numbers without inserting pauses.
