Voice- and Touch-Controlled Checklists

Fernando Salvetti, Roxane Gardner, Rebecca Minehart, Barbara Bertagni


From day 1 of training, pilots learn to utilize mnemonics, acronyms and aphorisms to remember checks, procedures and practices—and these techniques remain with them throughout their careers. Learning to use such memory aids effectively can help pilots in at least two distinct ways; it frees up working memory during routine operations and directs the mind towards required actions during situations and emergencies. Surgeons, physicians, paramedic personnel, and nurses are often invited to do the same. The amount of information and the level of detail included in checklists are among the most difficult issues to control during the development process of these tools, since there is no universal model of representation regarding iconography, text length, density of information, number of steps, colors, fonts, etc. regarding any of the elements involved in the system. Communication patterns, knowledge visualization strategies and techniques, and the ways to interact with the checklist are other challenging issues
