Jim Lerman's curator insight, July 10, 2013 5:07 PM

I think this question will eventually become almost completely moot. Voice to text software/apps are becoming more and more robust. I wrote my last book using Dragon Naturally Speaking. 

 

I believe that in a few years most writing will be done orally. Just as cursive handwriting is disappearing, keyboarding will diminish. Speed will not be as important because for large jobs, dictation will replace it. Editing and note-taking can be accomplished without so much concern for speed.

 

In the meantime, it is interesting to see that there was only negligible speed difference among the students in this study.
