Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Machine Transcription
This paper looks at machine transcription over time and discusses what it is, how it has evolved, who discovered it, and what significant milestones should be kept in mind by anyone interested in the technology. The paper ends with a conclusion and suggests that machine transcription largely grew out of the recognition that something better had to be done if accurate note-taking was to be achieved that overcame the persistence of human error. As an addendum, a great deal of time will be devoted to looking at the evolution of the tape recorder insofar as the tape recorder appears to be the one creation of the past century that has really enabled effective and accurate transcription to occur.
