With this in mind, the Executive Secretaries are quite busy and often require overtime. They handle the fast paced office well and are committed to getting their jobs done efficiently. Their team meets biweekly on issues pertaining to their roles in the company. Each of them has noticed a continued need for excessive overtime to complete their routine jobs. This problem has been consistent for the last six months and they are beginning to burn out. The Executives themselves are beginning to notice small changes in their work and attitude and are willing to try anything to help cut some time off their secretaries' day. The help of the Information Technology Department has been enlisted. IT will begin searching for a voice recognition program to help reduce some of the problems.The ProblemThe team of Executive Secretaries has to work excessive overtime to complete their routine jobs. They have attended meetings and time management training to help the situation but nothing seems to alleviate the continued problem of overtime.After a brainstorming session, the team came up with some great solutions including having each Executive's personal computer equipped with a Voice Recognition Software Program.The team's main reason for the voice recognition suggestion is based on the amount of time it takes to decipher handwritten notes and letters written by the executives.The executives would then be able to compose their own notes and letters. There may be a need for the Executive Secretaries to format these notes and letters into appropriate business format.

Voice-recognition software is used with an increasingly wide range of business software but lacks the ability to understand the meaning of what is said.(1)The proposed technological solution to increasing the secretaries' time and efficiency, and allowing the executives to write their own letters or memos, is voice recognition. Voice recognition can be used for a variety of reasons. It can be used to accommodate disabilities, help those who are unable to type, improve productivity, or in this case free up some time for the secretaries so they are able to do other tasks.Whatever the reason for voice recognition, it will require some time and money to...
