Lyons, Kent, Skeels, Christopher and Starner, Thad (2005): Providing support for mobile calendaring conversations: a wizard of oz evaluation of dual-purpose speech. In: Proceedings of 7th conference on Human-computer interaction with mobile devices and services 2005. pp. 243-246.

We present a Wizard of Oz evaluation of dual-purpose speech, a technique designed to provide support during a face-to-face conversation by leveraging a user's conversational speech for input. With a dual-purpose speech interaction, the user's speech is meaningful in the context of a human-to-human conversation while providing useful input to a computer. For our experiment, we evaluate the ability to schedule appointments with our calendaring application, the Calendar Navigator Agent. We examine the relative difference between using speech for input compared to traditional pen input on a PDA. We found that speech is more direct and our participants can use their conversational speech for computer input. In doing so, we reduce the manual input needed to operate a PDA while engaged in a calendaring conversation.

Lyons, Kent, Skeels, Christopher, Starner, Thad, Snoeck, Cornelis M., Wong, Benjamin A. and Ashbrook, Daniel (2004): Augmenting conversations using dual-purpose speech. In: Proceedings of the 2004 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2004. pp. 237-246.

In this paper, we explore the concept of dual-purpose speech: speech that is socially appropriate in the context of a human-to-human conversation which also provides meaningful input to a computer. We motivate the use of dual-purpose speech and explore issues of privacy and technological challenges related to mobile speech recognition. We present three applications that utilize dual-purpose speech to assist a user in conversational tasks: the Calendar Navigator Agent, DialogTabs, and Speech Courier. The Calendar Navigator Agent navigates a user\'s calendar based on socially appropriate speech used while scheduling appointments. DialogTabs allows a user to postpone cognitive processing of conversational material by proving short-term capture of transient information. Finally, Speech Courier allows asynchronous delivery of relevant conversational information to a third party.
