This paper describes SpeechForms, a system that uses novel techniques to automatically identify form element semantics and form element content, and to semi-automatically generate language models that allow users to fill out each web form element by voice. Preliminary experimental results show that simple per-element language models are faster and may be more accurate than statistical n-gram language models trained on large amounts of web text data.
