Abstract

This chapter describes the repair strategies of writers who have started using speech recognition systems for writing business texts. It brings together the oral and the written representation of the text. This characteristic of the new writing context created by voice recognition is the central starting point of the chapter. The chapter describes a case study in which writing strategies related to repairs are explored, and the relation between the use of writing modes and the repair behaviour is described. It describes the repair strategies of two writers with different dictating experience. The chapter confirms the potential hybrid character of speech recognition as a writing mode, since it combines characteristics of both classical dictating and keyboard based word processing. It better describes the interaction with the 'text produced so far', and evaluates the cognitive load caused by imperfect representations.

Digital media has become an increasingly powerful force in modern society. This volume brings together outstanding European, American and Australian research in "writing and digital media" and explores its cognitive, social and cultural implications. The book is divided into five sections, covering major areas of research: writing modes and writing environments (e.g. speech technology), writing and communication (e.g. hypervideos), digital tools for writing research (e.g. web analysis tools, keystroke logging and eye-tracking), writing in online educational environments (e.g. collaborative writing in L2), and social and philosophical aspects of writing and digital media (e.g. CMC, electronic literacy and the global digital divide).In addition to presenting programs of original research by internationally known scholars from a variety of disciplines, each chapter provides a comprehensive review of the current state-of-the-art in the field and suggests directions for future research.
