This paper presents a survey on the long-term adoption of speech recognition in medical applications. Thirty-one participants who authored papers on medical speech recognition applications responded to the survey. The participants viewed speech technology more favorably today than when they originally published their papers. However, the adoption of speech applications did not always correspond with their enthusiasm. The survey suggested that hands-busy, eyes-busy, and mobility requirements are not always enough to offset current limitations in speech technology, There may need to be other benefits, such as decreased medical costs and increased quality of care, or other factors, such as using a limited vocabulary.
