"Speech is appropriate for applications where the caller is required to enter a large volume of information or to select from a wide range of possible options.

General Manager, EMEA
IVE Group Limited
United Kingdom

""The most common uses for speech technology are self-service applications that enable callers to carry out simple tasks, such as checking or updating information, booking tickets or carrying out simple transactions without speaking to an operator. Other common uses include identification and verification of callers and call routing, where the more complex examples allow the caller to state the reason for their call in their own words, rather than selecting options from menu trees.

Speech is most appropriate for simple transactions where there is little or no value in a conversation taking place with a live agent.""
