A great deal of research has been conducted in the past 23 years concerning the use of voice recognition equipment with computers. The goal of this research has been to improve the nan- machine interface. With the breakthrough from discrete to continuous voice recognition technology in the 1973's, a large step toward that goal was taken. This thesis attempts to show that continuous voice recognition technology can be effectively applied in a highly interactive, computer-aided wargaming environment. Through analysis of the strictly-formatted command syntax of the Naval Warfare Interactive Simulation System (NWISS) and use of commercially available, innovative, continuous speech hardware and software, a new input medium was created for the users of that wargame. The true effectiveness of this application of voice recognition technology must still be tested. Plans for such testing are being made and, to that extent, the thesis objectives are partly met.
