    Welcome to Tech Week! This is one of the last weeks of The Story Behind before I officially go on Baby Break, but this week was planned way back in January when Jim Collison from Home Gadget Geeks reached out and wanted to do a collaboration of his show and mine. Here's the link to the episode of Home Gadget Geeks from Thursday, February 9th.

    In this episode, I’ll be talking about … well, actually, let me have Siri tell you what I’ll be talking about.

    Siri: Emily will be talking about my history. Starting with my ancestors, computers that would take up whole rooms with the function of being able to recognize a handful of spoken words, through the technology we know today.

    Here is your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Voice Recognition
