2. What about the noise factor at school?



Yes, excessive background noise can be a problem. To use voice recognition in the school setting, the student needs a relatively quiet, more or less private place to work. Even though voice recognition is being used in office environments and the software offers a number of internal settings that help control for ambient noise, middle and secondary school students can generate a lot of background noise; therefore placement must be a consideration. Sometimes voice recognition systems are placed in resource rooms, but a corner of the library or a station in the computer lab can also serve the purpose under the right circumstances (e.g., during a quieter, lower use period).
