Voice control has a built in drawback.


No one wants to hear you talking to you computer.

Not many people want to be heard talking to their own computer either.

So unless you are in a private office voice control is not a good idea. It's fine on StarTrek, but not in the middle of an open plan office. ( And even in StarTrek they didn't often talk to the computer, come to think of it.)
