This paper introduces trends in speech recognition applications in Japan. Applications in the past several years are divided into three areas: application areas with actual results, new trends, and application areas under development. A focus on changes of application areas is given. Subsequently, the four year advancement in speech technologies after the first ICSLP in Kobe is investigated along with the key technologies that will realize next-generation products: various techniques for robust speech recognition and rapid-prototyping for a user interface.
