Subject: Clarifying speech recognition vs. voice recognition in Style Guide

Hi folks,

Here is a draft update to the WAI Style Guide[1]:

"speech recognition" is for speech-to-text (SST), and usually what we're talking about for accessibility.
"voice recognition" is different; it's about identifying the speaker, not what they're saying.

(For background, search the Web for "speech recognition voice recognition difference")

Please let me know if you disagree or have edit suggestions.
