Abstract

Whether a speech input system leads to improved performance for elderly users was explored. The performance and the degree of auditory interference when using speech input systems were compared with that when using a keyboard. The effectiveness of speech input systems was also compared among three age groups (young, middle, and elderly). The ratio of the number of entered letters using a speech input system to that using a keyboard was higher for both middle and elderly groups than that for the young group. This meant that the efficiency for the middle and elderly groups was enhanced by using a speech input system. The degree of auditory interference for the elderly and middle groups was less than that for the young group. Especially for elderly and middle groups of subjects who were not accustomed to key operation, the speech input system enhanced the entry efficiency. We can conclude that a speech input system lead to the improved performance for elderly computer users.
