Abstract
A TEST PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DEMONSTRATE THE USE OF VOICE INPUT IN AN INTUITIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR PROGRAMMING. THE PROGRAMMING ENVIRONMENTS, WHICH IS UNDER DEVELOPMENT BY ECLECTECH, CONSISTS OF ASSEMBLING A FLOW CHART FROM A MENU OF ICONS ON A GRAPHICS WORK STATION. THE INTERACTIVE PROCESS RESULTS IN THE CONCURRENT CONSTRUCTION OF A FLOW CHART AND A USER SPECIFIED HIGH LEVEL LANGUAGE (HLL) SOURCE TEXT FILE. THE METHOD FORCES APPROPRIATE USER RESPONSES DURING FLOW CHART CONSTRUCTION EXCEPT WHEN UNRESTRICTED TEXT INPUT IS CONVENIENT FOR IDENTIFICATION OF CONSTANTS, DATA STRUCTURES, PROGRAM SUBSTRUCTURES, AND OTHER LABELS. WE PROPOSE TO USE VOICE AS THE PRIMARY TEXT ENTRY MECHANISM. THE RESULT OF THE PHASE I EFFORT WOULD BE A PROTOTYPE FOR DEMONSTRATION OF THE CONCEPT.
