Speech interfaces have the potential to address the data entry bottleneck of many applications in the field of medical informatics. An experimental study evaluated the effect of perceptual structure on a multimodal speech interface for the collection of histopathology data. A perceptually structured multimodal interface, using speech and direct manipulation, was shown to increase speed and accuracy. Factors influencing user acceptance are also discussed.
