Compositionists and rhetoricians are beginning to note the importance of technologies that facilitate the vocal production of text. This author uses both medium studies and data collected from an ethnography of three student writers to explore the effects of speech recognition programs on the writing process. It is concluded that both ethnography and medium studies are crucial in going forward to study how "writing" changes when the human voice is filtered through technology.
