Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
@brinewby very good point. I'll have to check over the TOS for mobile banking to check if it include maximum amounts for deposit.

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
Having a watch and a mobile banking account, this spoke to me. Namely, it's a reminder that technology isn't the problem, or the solution. People cause problems. People solve problems. I received a check last month. I have moved, and I tried to upload the deposit through my phone. Problem was, the amount was higher than the bank's limit. Deposit declined. Really? The watch could have taken the photo, but the bank still would have declined it. I opened a bank account locally. I will close out that remote account soon. So, as cool as it would be for the watch to help, people stopped progress.

Re: Multifactor authentication is going to be the future...
@briandnewby My bank has been pushing mobile deposits. You can use your tablet or smartsphone to take a picture of a check on the front and back and then use the app to make the deposit without having to ever enter the bank. Now if a watch would have the same capability to take that kind of picture, it could have that function even without any speech directive. But I kind of like the ida of talking into the watch and pretending you're Dick Tracey.

@Ariella The Apple Watch speech to text works pretty well, but not great. It's probably about a 7 out of 10 in my view. That could really be a major deficiency in the banking world, though--my watch ate your deposit.

Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
@kbode Of course, Google also collects data on searches, etc., though I suppose that Microsoft can potentially get a lot more info on users if it can track everything they're doing on the device in which it runs.

"The downside is if Cortina doesn't know something it opens a Bing search results page."

Interesting. Can that be modified within the OS?

Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
Partially just habit -- as I like the OS to run as efficiently as possible -- and partially because i like my OS as "quiet" and possible, and try to minimize the amount of behavioral tracking chatter sent back to Microsoft. 

If I want to search the Internet I use Google. If I want to search for files, a simplified search interface is generally all I need. I've notice my wife has bumped up her use of Siri, but I just don't generally find voice commands all that useful after I've repeated my request and had it misinterpreted a few times.

@kq4ym interesting! i'll have to look into that more.

I know I'd prefer to type that in. I'd be more certain of it being set and clear and have a text to refer to for modificaiton if the search needs it. 

<The downside is if Cortina doesn't know something it opens a Bing search results page.> And as I said in a comment on another blog, even Spiderman gave up on Bing!

Re: Let's hope synthetic speech doesn't catch up too quickly...
I think I remember that there was some research on cockpit artificial voices for pilots that found a female voice was better for warnings given to pilots. How that might or might not apply to Cortina might be interesting to find out.  I use Cortina mainly now to test out the capabilities and when it's easier to say a long search sentence than to type in a search query. It's also cool to get a quick weather check. The downside is if Cortina doesn't know something it opens a Bing search results page.
