This provocation shares findings from the use of bespoke voice recognition performance software in a number of seminars (which took place in the 2014–2016 academic years at Glasgow School of Art, University of Warwick, and Falmouth University). The software, made available through this publication, is a web-app which uses Google Chrome’s native voice-recognition function. It can be used as a digitally augmented performance tool for poetry and has been adapted for use in teaching by emphasising certain formal constraints and characteristics. The primary aims of this provocation are to introduce the software and to encourage further development.
