> Why voice control is not the goal of the next level of PC and tablet UI design I don't know

I had an OS/2 box nearly 20 years ago that had voice input as a standard feature.

Microsoft had Speech API (SAPI) since 1995:

"""The first version of SAPI was released in 1995, and was supported on Windows 95 and Windows NT 3.51. """

Voice control was the goal of the _previous_ (x2 or x3) level of PCs.
