The system we have implemented uses speech to increase the input bandwidth for a wearable computer used in hands-busy environments. The original hypertext structure of the inspection task was enhanced by recasting it into a conventional html format, allowing the user interface to be used not only to access the inspection document, but also to provide access to a variety of task-relevant documents, both local to the device and available remotely through a wireless LAN. Finally, we have specified a speech extension to html which allows specialized browsers to accept voice equivalents of standard browser inputs.
