It will be interesting to see where speech to text goes over time, as the overall percentage of "correct" has flat lined for the most part over the years - probably due to the fact that these are dictionary based conversions and languages change over time.

But that aside, many companies, broadcasters and such use it as means to jump start the transcription process where they will listen to the dialog via headphones and repeat back into the diction software, then make any corrections from there. But in tests so far, a fast typists still beats this method in both time and accuracy, but that is always a decision of budget for who you're hiring. Things may change in the future.

I have also tried using speech as a means to drive the editing software - not this has been a while, but I was much faster using keyboard and mouse than dictating the commands. Simple things like play and stop were almost a wash in time - but everything else was slower. Speech is a real time process, many things including thought are faster than real time.
