Yes. When I worked at IBM, the people developing and testing the voice
input systems couldn't work on them regularly. They became hoarse after a
full day of constant talking, and had to recover with a couple of days not
talking. They avoided using the system unless they had to use it for
testing. They preferred to work without the voice input. Although it
sounds cools in a science-fictiony way, voice interface is not very usable.
It would be good for public kiosks and small transactions, but not for
working all day.
