Abstract

The future of telecommunications becomes more unpredictable every passing day. Products and services that were just dreamed of in the past, only six months to a year ago, are here and ready to be used in everyday life. Wireless service has been affected by PCS providers who are offering services to customers that are considerably cheaper. Voice recognition programs/applications were only being bounced around in 1997, but currently are being used at work places and homes. At the 1998 Comdex technology trade show six major software companies were promoting their voice recognition programs.

There are some glitches still. But as time goes by (perhaps another year) programs will be perfected and companies will have a new twist to their software. Computer processor speeds will steadily increase, while the prices will drop, spawning new applications in voice processing, multimedia, and imaging (Green, 1997). The regulations and laws of telecommunications need to be revised. Most of the dilemmas, laws and regulations, are in the hands of Congress and the courts, and unless they are solved promptly more problems will began to occur and further complicate matters.
