Will Oremus over at Slate recently decided to write an entire piece using voice recognition technology. You can see all of the mistakes that it made, here

But even though voice tech, like Siri, does make some mistakes, Will thinks that it's gotten better. He spoke with some people and different tech companies about advancements in the technology and its importance in voice controlled devices like Google Glass, going forward.

Will joins Take Two's Alex Cohen to talk about advancements in voice recognition tech.

For the record, Siri recognized Will's last name — Oremus — as "in Uranus," or at least that's what it sounds like. When Siri's speaking your text messages back to your boss so that he doesn't have to look at the screen, that's what matters.
