When working in virtual reality, engaging with virtualized keyboards for data entry, along with entering commands to launch VR workstation applications, remains a significant challenge to productivity. 

 In healthcare, clinical providers have long used dictation solutions like Dragon Medical One to significantly reduce the need to use a keyboard and mouse to enter patient data and control their clinical workstations. As it's been reported that clinicians can invest approximately 40% of their time during the day entering patient data into a computer, using voice-to-text translation applications can enable clinicians to invest more of their available time and energy focused on direct patient care.  

If a solution like Dragon's Professional Individual application can be implemented in a virtual reality workspace, imagine the productivity gains that would be achieved. For those of us who engage virtual reality on a regular basis, we would then be able to interact with our VR workstations and virtual spaces, via voice to text/command translation. Gone would be the days of struggling with clunky virtual keyboards to enter data and control our VR workstations while in a virtualized space. 

 As advances with Oculus Quest cameras and hand tracking improve, there is growing potential to interface with our virtual space and our real-world VR workstations, using hand gestures. Like many innovations that are beginning to debut in virtual reality, some of these ideas are born out of scenes from Sci-Fi movies, such as Tony Stark's XR Lab in Iron Man and Dr. Strange's hand gestures
