We demonstrate Parakeet - a continuous speech recognition system for mobile touch-screen devices. Parakeet's inter- face is designed to make correcting errors easy on a hand- held device while on the move. Users correct errors using a touch-screen to either select alternative words from a word confusion network or by typing on a predictive software key- board. Our interface design was guided by computational experiments. We conducted a user study to validate our de- sign. We found novices entered text at 18 WPM while seated indoors and 13 WPM while walking outdoors. Author Keywords
