List of Top Voice Assistant Mobile Apps for Smartphones

Speech recognition is triggering the next revolution in mobile user experience. Voice recognition softwares allow people to access information, create messages, and control mobile devices all with the power of voice and advanced text input.

Speech recognition is a broader solution that refers to technology that can recognize speech without being targeted at single speaker—such as a call system that can recognize arbitrary voices.

Speech recognition applications include voice user interfaces such as voice dialing (e.g., “Call home”), call routing (e.g., “I would like to make a collect call”), domotic appliance control, search (e.g., find a podcast where particular words were spoken), simple data entry (e.g., entering a credit card number), preparation of structured documents (e.g., a radiology report), speech-to-text processing (e.g., word processors or emails), and aircraft (usually termed Direct Voice Input).
