Request: Speech Recognition for Coding(UVM/Systemverilog) and Tool GUI controls

Recommended Posts


I am diagnosed with ‘Wrist tendinitis’/’tenosynovitis’ due to RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury). Hence I started using speech recognition as much as possible.  On windows, controls are 80% accurate and dictation is 50% accurate.  With practice, I am trying to use keyboard and voice recognition just the same way a pianist would sing.

I think with the wealth of research in speech recognition, it is possible to get a decent accuracy
  1. for coding (UVM, systemverilog) as there are predefined set of keywords, classes, functions etc.
  2. for GUI tool controls

An example of coding:

    to see in editor "class myenv extends uvm_env;"

    I would

    Say: "class" type: myenv Say:"extends uvm_env;"

For GUI usage, tool vendors/users could come up with a number of useful features similar to keyboard shortcuts. These features may be implemented both on Windows and Linux platforms.


(Hope in few years engineers are able to dictate their code into a tool and debug it too! Also wish there is research on use of various HCIs for EDA)

Thanks for reading my request!

P.S.: I used windows speech recognition to write this e-mail as I am suffering from wrist pain. Please kindly ignore grammar mistakes.
