# SpeechNavigation option. What is it for?

Could somebody please explain what is the use for SpeechNavigation option found in the option inspector?

• From way back in 2008: "Really nobody knows what the option SpeechNavigation stands for? Not even people at WRI?" – dr.blochwave Aug 15 '14 at 13:27
• @blochwave :-) yeah, I asked this in 2008 in MathGroup. Perhaps this time someone will reply. – magma Aug 15 '14 at 13:35

This is what it looks like in the Option Inspector, under Cell Options.

Given the options available, my guess is that it would be a way of editing the contents of a cell using a microphone (i.e. "Speech Navigation")?

That way the meaning of "Delete", "Paste" and "Select" would be obvious, "Input" and "Output" less clear (perhaps changing the cell type?), and "Motion" might be to move the cursor along a line.

I don't have a microphone to test this hypothesis though.

• I did connect a Mic, changed the settings, spoke into it "Delete" and other stuff, but...nothing :-( – magma Aug 15 '14 at 14:33
