Misheard or Miss Herd?

Speech recognition is tough. What’s weird is that good enough is usually not good enough. Even at 90% plus accuracy, reading a speech transcription can be awful. Little things like where a comma is placed can have a big impact on meaning.

Worse, is that when these results are used as the basis for other analysis such as personality or emotion, it can compound errors.
