Keyboarding e-learning.
In verschiedenen Ländern vorbereitet die Schule junge Leute für Umgang mit PC sehr unterschiedlich. Wo das Sagen die Spezialisten für Computern haben, die selber das Tastschreiben nicht beherrschen, liefert die Schule in die Praxis oft Menschen, die dreifach mehr Zeit für die Texterfassung (z.B. beim Konzipieren von Referaten, wissenschaftlichen Texten, Protokollierung sowie e-mail oder chat) benötigen. Die tschechische Methode ZAV bietet  nach 45jähriger Entwicklung einen sehr effektiver, aber auch spielerischer und motivierender Weg zur Tastaturbeherrschung und anschließend zum individuellem Erlernen von Routinen (z.B. Fremdsprachen-Wörtern) in drei Sprachen.

Lingua e stenotipia
Lo studio e l'analisi razionale di una lingua permettono di individuare i principi fondamentali e gli elementi validi che occorrono per realizzare qualsiasi tecnica di scrittura veloce. Seguendo infatti rigidamente questi principi si arriva a creare un  rapporto fra le varie lingue, dal punto di vista fonetico-ortografico, che consente di realizzare un metodo comune di gestione informatica per la stenotipia.

AURELIO BRUNO and PAOLO VIVIANI San Raffaele University - Milano 
Studio del profilo temporale dell'elaborazione del linguaggio attraverso l'analisi delle abilita' di trascrizione
Ricercatori dell'Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele di Milano sotto la guida del Prof. Paolo Viviani, direttore del Laboratorio di Percezione, Azione e Cognizione (LAPCO), hanno condotto una ricerca sui fattori cognitivi, motori e linguistici che presiedono alla trascrizione dattilografica. La ricerca è stata condotta avvalendosi anche di operatori altamente professionali. Sulla base anche di studi precedenti, la ricerca ha dimostrato due risultati principali: 1) La struttura temporale delle sequenze di battute sulla tastiera dipende rigidamente dalla parola che si trascrive, e resta invariata quale che sia la velocità alla quale si esegue la trascrizione. Questa struttura è peraltro specifica di ogni individuo. Come tale, essa puo' essere considerata l'espressione di una "melodia motoria" intrinsecamente associata all'interazione fra linguaggio e motricità. 2) L'esistenza di tali melodie motorie invarianti rispetto al ritmo di battuta permette di mettere in evidenza delle variazioni di ritmo le quali, a loro volta, sembrano correlate ai processi mentali associati con la comprensione del linguaggio. L'analisi del compito di trascrizione dattilografica apre quindi una finestra per la comprensione di questi complessi processi cognitivi.

Here, There or Everywhere
The market acceptance of cellular handsets and their impressive penetration has benefited the industry while requiring the development of true consumer devices. As a consequence of market acceptance of cellular handsets, intuitive human interface methodologies have came into focus, highlighting embedded speech recognition as one of the most advantageous technologies.
These days, many consumers perceive speech recognition or Voice Interface as perquisites. Embedded speech recognition has matured to support significant market share increase moreover new markets opening and declaring their need for embedded speech solutions to guide and manage their manufactured devices. 
Therefore, true speaker independent, train less quality driven user-friendly human interface designed for mass-market, cost-conscious audience is required both by the consumers and by the manufactures.
It is era of convergence, innovative, exciting new technologies and true consumer devices to cross-the-chasm. From wireless PDAs, smart Phone, MultiModal systems, DSR as far as interactive robotic toys, all require intuitive human interface. This convergence demands and highlights the need for embedded speech recognition powered by strong support for device operation and data based interaction.
These factors and more have pushed embedded speech recognition to "stage front" as the preeminent user interface. 
Embedded recognition technologies engulf the fundamentals of the user experience to converge remote driven services. Providing the user with quality, user friendly, intuitive experience at the handsets layer is truly a requirement to the success of add-on services.
