Miscommunication has shaped our use of words and language over time, and TypeMachine could reduce miscommunication and misinterpretation of written works. It changes the dynamic of reading, which would normally be an individual's own interpretation of sounds, into an audio-visual sensory of how it truly would have been spoken.

In its current form, TypeMachine encompasses the very basics of the human voice and maps frequency, volume and speed of human speech typographically. It also notes the confidence of the speech recognition software that it was correct in understanding the sentence.
