ASR/ Voice Shadowing / Voicewriting

Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) is a technique in which a person, often a transcriptionist, combines the use of speech recognition software with verbatim repetition or "shadowing" of what is being said by another person.

The ASR technique is sometimes used in a courtroom setting by a court stenographer, who would speak into a "steno mask" to isolate the person's voice from background noise. The technique might be helpful in a meeting setting for some individuals who are deaf or hard to hearing, by providing a verbatim transcript as the meeting is taking place. The technique is sometimes called voice shadowing or voice writing.
