The most recent MTIA Association Update reports:

The Workgroup decided to hold a summit during the annual conference in Louisville, Kentucky on Friday, April 24, 2009, to seek input related to a broad range of issues that arose during an initial draft of a white paper on SRT adoption. The summit objective is to finalize and publish the white paper and issue a “Speech Recognition Adoption Guide” for members of the industry to use when considering the incorporation of SRT into their operations. The purpose of the Adoption Guide is not to debate the technology, but to provide guidance on the operational impact and requirements that may be encountered during implementation.
