Abstract : In the increasingly complex area of man-machine interface, the human operator is often required to perform two or more tasks which demand full attention simultaneously, oftentimes overloading the operator's manual and visual capabilities. The recent commercial availability of voice recognition devices has opened up the possibility that a voice-actuated response could act as an extra pair of hands for the operator. Proponents of voice recognition devices have hypothesized that vocal response would be independent of other channels; would interfere less with other activities and would be faster than manual response mode. The present study was designed to test the effectiveness of a voice response as compared with a manual response in a time-sharing environment. (Author)
