Abstract
This thesis investigates speech recognition in a command and control workstation environment. It discusses the Navy's need for a command and control workstation (CCWS) and the importance of the human interface design. In particular, it evaluates the performance of Stanford Research Institute International (SRI's) 1000 word discrete speech recognizer. The speech board is intended to be used in the Command and Control Multi-Media workstation being developed by SRI. Additionally, it investigates a VOTAN continuous recognizer (currently for use by research and commercial vendors) in an interactive warfare simulation game. The results indicate that speech recognition systems could increase the capability of the commander to input and access information, provide more rapid response to information desired or displayed, and enhance human interaction in the man-machine interface. Past, current, and future speech applications are discussed
