Invoking a command in a word processor typically involves a break in the flow of writing. For example, if a user wants to insert a table into a document that she is editing, she has to execute an operation such as pressing a key combination, performing a mouse movement, or a gesture to invoke a command. Such breaks in flow causes a loss of productivity. Further, performing such movements may be difficult for users with motor disabilities. This disclosure describes techniques that enable a user to issue voice commands without a break in the flow of writing.
