We present Parakeet, a system for continuous speech recognition on mobile touch-screen devices. The design of Parakeet was guided by computational experiments and validated by a user study. Participants had an average text entry rate of 18 words-per-minute (WPM) while seated indoors and 13 WPM while walking outdoors. In an expert pilot study, we found that speech recognition has the potential to be a highly competitive mobile text entry method, particularly in an actual mobile setting where users are walking around while entering text.

This will be a short 20-minute talk.
