Voice to text - No Real Safety Advantage

AA Club Driving School - Did you know?


Voice-to-text Apps Offer "No Real Safety Advantage"
Research conducted by Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) illustrates that the voice-to-text apps offer “no real safety advantage” over manual texting.  The research study involved drivers traveling on a closed course while texting manually and while using both Siri (iPhone) and Vlingo (Android) voice-to-text applications.  Research findings reportedly show:
  • significantly delayed response times for drivers texting manually and “hands-free;”
  • significantly less ‘eyes on road’ time when texting, regardless of the method used;
  • for most tasks, manual texting required slightly less time than the voice-to-text method, but driver performance was roughly the same with both.
The TTI study confirms what a previous body of research has shown—that hands-free is not risk-free. This research helps to set the stage for the release of the AAA Foundation research conducted with the University of Utah later this year.
“AAA believes the new voice-to-text study done by the Texas A & M Transportation Institute (TTI) is a step in the right direction. Past research confirms what we’ve known for many years that hands-free driving isn’t risk-free driving.  Most people understand the risks of distraction and other risky behaviors but refuse to apply what they know to their own behavior. While this study by TTI looks at texting, later this year AAA will be releasing a sophisticated comprehensive study that looks at the dangers of mental distraction and the implications for drivers,” said AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety’s President and CEO, Peter Kissinger.

It is represented that the voice-to-content applications offer "no genuine wellbeing advantage" over manual messaging. Messaging physically and keeping in mind that utilizes both iPhone and Vlingo voice-to-content applications. Past research affirms what we've known for a long time that sans hands driving isn't without hazard driving.
